Kitty, Daisy and Lewis - San Fran (11/02/2018)

The show opened with the sultry sounds of Emily Fairlight, whose Americana reminded me of Eb and Sparrow.  They put in a smooth but quiet set, to slowly warm us up.  Then it was on with the main act.  Back for their third, or is it fourth tour this brilliant multi instrumental sibling trio gave us a great night. they featured songs from their album Superscope plus a number of oldies from the previous releases.  One of the highlights was Lewis' guitar solo on a tune that resembled the ghost of Hooker's Boom Boom Boom.  Kitty Durham has always been the sexy enfant terrible and she didn't disappoint tonight.  Dressed in a tight black top, tight leather shorts and go-go boots and cussing about jet-lag and the stifling heat on stage (it was 25+ outside) she was not to be messed with.  Daisy also impressed with her harmonic playing and as always her skills on guitar and drums.  In the background Dad, Graeme kept tempo on guitar and tambourine.  Missing was mum, Ingrid Weiss, who was replaced on stage by another bassist.  It was great to see that Eddie Tan Tan Thornton is still playing with them, as he joined them on stage with his trumpet for a few numbers.   But it was a shame that the old Bodega has now gone.  The band noticed and sad so but they enjoyed San Fran's vibe and the full house of mostly older patrons did too.  Sadly, I'll miss the Auckland show which will also feature Blind Boy Paxton.
