WEGO: April 14th Enlighten Show!

Opening Set by Jesse and Jenny (25 megs)
WEGO Set (91 megs)

Here are the recordings from our April 14th show at the Enlighten Cafe! Jesse and Jenny did a short opening set of lush dynamic arrangements, full of both passion and restraint, and crowned by some truly moving rising swells of rhythm and harmony. After that, WEGO played a single 80-minute-ish set, broken only briefly at the mid-point to overwrite a few of the items on the boards.

Dennis was out with explosive barfing for this one, so the lineup was: Woody Frank (acoustic 6-string and voice), Jenny Freeling (djembe and voice), Ian McKagen (electric guitar and voice), Jesse Silvertrees (keys, djembe, and voice) and Me Woods (bassbox and voice).

I'm still finding myself a bit overwhelmed with a wealth of bus-projects, so I'll restrict my core commentary to that for now. However! I would like to take a tiny bit of space here to double my pleas to for you to share your impressions below in the comments. Even though I *know* people are downloading these, the main text has gotten a little lonely here recently (sniff), so if you were there at the time or get a chance to check out the recordings, consider adding a quick footnote and letting us know what part you found most memorable (or simply finishing Ian's pre-show limerick).
