Of Barrs and Benevento
The Slips Brad and Andrew Barr stayed in New York for an extra night after their performance with Surprise Me Mr. Davis at Sullivan Hall Sunday. While in town, the Barr brothers stopped by Marco Beneventos semi-regular residency at Brooklyns Bar 4 last night to play a surprise, two-hour set with their longtime friend. The trio ran through an interesting mix of jazz-based material that nodded to The Slip, The Duo and some of their collective influences, ranging from Led Zeppelin to Radiohead. The Barrs also helped Benevento through a few selections from his solo canon, including The Real Morning Party, and offered a choice cover of My Morning Jackets Golden.
Surprise Me Mr. Davis tour will come to a close at Fall River, MAs Narrows Center for The Arts this evening, while the Duo will play an acoustic show at New Orleans Preservation Hall on Saturday.
