Saturday, Pete’s Candy Store in Williamsburg, Brooklyn hosted an event for Go Folk Yourself.
Before running off to Joe Pug at Mercury Lounge, I watched the always amazing Christine Hoberg open up the night, followed by Free Advice.
Both acts, a refreshing change from the norm. Hoberg offering her sultry ways to a sausage fest that could use a pretty girl in a dress on stage.
Free Advice keep it real, gathering around an old timey feeling microphone with their acoustic instruments. They make you feel like it’s 1920 again. Pete’s is a great spot for intimate music, probably the best “awkward hallway room” for music that Brooklyn has to offer.
Here is Oh Precious Burning [5.7MB] by Free Advice, with a great intro as to the songs origins. Put me on the Shelf [4.1MB]Christine Hoberg offers a stripped down version of Home. [4MB] It will be interesting to compare her performance to this upcoming Monday’s version where she will be joined by her full band at Rockwood Music Hall. [Rockwood Version Here]
