Brendan Benson – Venue – December 11, 2010
Witty banter, brilliant musicianship and great vocals highlight Brendan Benson’s set at Venue. Backed by a tight sounding three quarters of The Posies, Brendan’s folksy lyrics are perfect early evening listening. Being an early show (2130) and supporting headlining act The Posies, the crowd was a bit slow to grow to capacity but that didn’t stop the band from delivering an excellent 35 minute set.
Having only ever seen Brendan headline as part of The Raconteurs I hope to get to see a solo headline gig sometime soon. Until then I’m very happy with what’s delivered tonight!
