Sacramento’s own The Evening Episode opened the hour-late show. The band was very good, with a Feist-like approach to music.
Recently Mirah started a side project with Spectratone International, and it’s similar to her older material yet different at the same time. They played video clips in the background that reminded me of something David Lynch would do.
I’d definitely see Mirah again, although she should definitely choose a different venue. The Press Club is a bar after all and even though there were enthusiastic listeners (who I would never suspect Mirah fans), you’d have to think that there would be other loud bar patrons looking to get laid.
I also have to give a shout-out to the hardcore photographer on platform shoes with a pretty neat SLR camera.
