MP3 Downloads – Go Folk Yourself @ Pete’s Candy Store, Brooklyn

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]

Weekend in Providence

I spent the weekend in Providence with The Low Anthem so we can write together.

We’ve got some interesting stuff planned.

Here is The Low Anthem playing at Firehouse 13, I’m in the front row, hehe
