Tiny Mtns, The Great Unknown

As for our show at Tea Bazaar the night before last, we "headlined," playing to an elite crew of only our most devoted followers.

Before we took the stage two bands played. Tiny Mtns (formerly called Elijah Wyman) had acoustic guitar, clarinet, and banjo. The middle third of the set was performed by Elijah alone, on auto-harp, which he played without having to look at the labels on the buttons, something I'd beforehand only seen done by my second-grade music teacher. In trio-mode they had some really cool three-part harmonies.

The Great Unknown was five strong guys from Philadelphia. They had two guitars, bass, drums, and a lap steel. They were country and West(ern)-Philadelphia music, I guess. They confirmed what my brother has said about Philadelphia having a difficult to use bus system.
