Pictures from the Where’s Aubrey Habitat Show 12.29.17

Leave a comment

We played a show last year. Hah. OK, last year was only 7 days ago, but it’s true. During the show, we dropped a new CD called “diversion” which you can order for yourself. Have a listen to our favorite track!

BTW, the super delicious cover art is by Eli McGraw.

Collectively, we raised $1181 for Habitat for Humanity’s work in Clarke County, bringing Where’s Aubrey’s all concert total to $15,662.

The concert was a blast to play. Here are some pictures. In each set, we started out with only two people on stage, Gary McGraw on violin and Rhine Singleton on guitar.

Eventually (during both sets) we were joined by stunt guitarist Allen Kitselman and drummer Nick Schrenk (both of the Bitter Liberals).

The highlight of the evening for us was honoring our biggest fan and long time Berryville arts supporter Michael Hobert. Here’s what I said about Michael from the stage.

The energy was palpable during the show. Thanks to the 100+ people who came to see Where’s Aubrey perform. We’ll be back.

Burn Baby Burn: 2017 Winter Solstice Fire

Cerbe meets mogli before dark

Music. Great food. Huge fire. Friends. Boilo. What more could you want?

Early birds get to see the lighting

Mmmmmm. Beer.

The lighting

Put it in perspective: 100 feet of flame.

This year the fairy ring of osage oranges turned into a warning line for fire spread. We had to get water buckets and a hose out for the first time ever.

The fire spreads

The two (or three) pods making up the solstice party are always a good mix. Food and cheesy Christmas music in the barn. Fire and live music in the field. This year some of the real music moved into the barn during a brief rain.

Strolling the street of the Geisha and looking for a pre-dinner drink in low-light lovely conditions, we found The Stardust Club. Wonderful company and American Blues sung from the heart by an expressive-faced man. Perfect.

If you go out carousing with Pat Dunne, don’t expect to be home much before daybreak.

Tokyo nightlife

After some great cocktails and some snacks, we were off to catch a couple of bands.

The opener, The Dead Bambies, talked and joked as much as they played, but when they played they were punk as fuck.

Jungles!!! was loud as hell. Standing in the speaker cone was probably a bad idea. Two days of hearing recovery required. All four musicians were women, but a “girl band” this was not.

The summer solstice weather could not have been finer. 81, sunny, perfect river weather.

Post river, it was time to light the fire.
