ONE IN TEN WORDS
review on our release show at
The Dakota Tavern
I'd heard of The Naive for a while now, but this February night at The Dakota Tavern was my first opportunity to hear their songs live. And wouldn't you know it, they were putting on this special show as a last opportunity to hear this particular set songs. The band is gearing up for a new album and a fresh set of tunes.
The Naive amalgamates a ton of amazing musical styles and influences into an amazing, familiar yet ambitious, and wholly unique sound. There are lots of different bands playing these days, many of them with similar influences and musical palates. The Naive live outside the trends and genre limitations with a very unique sonic signature. It's got a nostalgic yet fresh feel for my ears. It may be contradictory, but that's art.
In short, I loved witnessing incredible musicianship, great songwriting, pure performance, passion and energy coming together in The Naive.
The Naive headlined this great night of music at The Dakota Tavern. Y&I was on just ahead of The Naive and Marlon Chaplin kicked things off. Please click on the links to see my photos and hear some music from these great artists.
And enjoy some music from The Naive. And join me in looking forward to what they have in store for us next.
