Robin Reid on Rocket Shop

I could expect nothing less but a night of music, banter, and unpredictability with Robin Reid - The Old Lantern's open mic night extraordinaire. We spoke of her "class A" open mic joint - which is, in fact, booked days in advance. In wake of Hurricane Irene, we reflected on the storm - the both fortunate and unexpected experience with her newly found-favorite bands - Guards, Deer Tick, and more. I was thrilled to hear it, as I both had no idea they came to Vermont, and found a special interest in her fave-band, Guards. Enough to play the track twice - yes, twice. Soon after, Robin took the stage and played a couple live tracks of her own, from her Ya-Ya-Yamaha acoustic guitar. For her first go on the radio - she did a splendid job.
