A brief School of Seven Bells roundup

Aly of School of Seven Bells

Occasioned by their really wonderful show the other night at the Detroit Bar. It’s the third time I’ve seen them in a year and a half and each time has been great as well as engagingly different. In this case it was partially because Claudia Deheza couldn’t make the performance — I gather she was ill — but Aly did the solo turn more than well.

My OC Weekly feature article revolved around my interview with Ben Curtis while my latest Foxy Digitalis piece is a bit of a review of the show, talking about both them and the excellent openers Active Child.

All that and I admit to being a bit tickled when Ben noted between songs at one point that they had performed at Detroit before (and quite the show that was), saying how great it was, then pausing and wondering if it was that great. I said something like “Yes it was!” and he looked over, paused a second, stepped up to the mike again and went “Ned?” What can I say.
