What You Missed: Spirits of the Red City at the Cake Shop

15 Aug

Partway through the early Spirits of the Red City show at the Cake Shop we got a text from a member of the audience- “You have got to charge more than ten dollars for this band.” It’s true, even if they didn’t only play a handful of shows in the Twin Cities a year, a Spirits show is a precious thing, a beautiful an entrancing mix of co-operation and musicianship, full of powerfully orchestrated moments dropping off to the subtlest and most intimate of silences. It’s exactly the kind of experience we wanted when we started hosting the Cake Shop house shows.

On top of their musical generosity, the road-tested Spirits crew were full of stories of other bands and hosts who had been generous to them while on tour. They spoke of Austin, TX band Some Say Leland and their mash-ups of contact sports and whiffle ball, the giant barn of Willy T. Taylor and his wife Bethany outside of Modesto, CA where the people started coming and partying at 10:30 in the morning yet still sat silent through the set before getting back to partying. Dovekins from Denver, CO were also thanked for their friendship and support, and that’s the best that any of us can hope for- some friends to see us through travels and some more to welcome us home.
