The Loudest Sound in My Heart

I went and saw Michael Pritzl, of The Violet Burning fame, on Saturday night at St. Timothy's Anglican Church in Scarborough. It was an excellent show, at an excellent venue. It's always great when you get to finally see one of your musical hero's live in concert. It's better when you get to have a short conversation with him afterwards. He played an acoustic set, which was surprisingly good. I wasn't sure what to expect, since The Violet Burning generally include electric guitar, feedback, ambient styles and the occaisional wall of sound. But, the songs he selected for this show worked really well on just the acoustic. Maybe next time they let him across the border he'll take the full band.
