[Concert Review] The Weepies, High Noon Saloon, Oct. 28th

The Weepies The High Noon Saloon, Oct 28th, special thanks to trueendeavors.com The Weepies are back and better than ever! While on their latest tour, they stopped by the High Noon Saloon and played for a sold out crowd.  I have never seen the High Noon this packed and it was an enjoyable experience. Although the crowd was large and the High Noon is a pretty big place, the show felt amazingly intimate.  Everyone was laid back and loving the mellow feel of the show.  The stage was set like someone’s living room with subtle lights and candles lit everywhere.    The band’s personal life definitely comes through with their performance.  The happily married couple has great chemistry on stage and they only enhance each other's talent.  Steve and Deb have that quirky indie vibe that just emanates from them and you can’t help but be totally fascinated.  They are exactly what you would think Juno and Pauly Bleeker would grow up to be.  The two frequently sing simultaneously and their combined efforts make for haunting melodies.  Even more so in person I think.  I was happy to hear my very favorite song  World Spins Madly On which was done perfectly.  I also was impressed by their show closer This Is Not A Lullaby.  That tune is off their new album Be My Thrill and while I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite from the record, I was overwhelmed by the extra emotion and passion Deb seemed to put into it.  The Weepies played Little Bird for their encore, a song I had never heard before but immediately took to.  I found it an incredibly written song both musically and lyrically and immediately went home to find it.      The only objection I can give about the performance was its length.  They played a great show but a little short.  I heard many people in the crowd express the same feeling and wishing they would have stayed on a little longer, even after the one song encore.

I was up in Wausau for the Big Bull Falls Blues Fest, and had a great time watching all the great live music. The big surprise of the day was the guy who played at 3pm. He's just 15 years old and is a good friend of Buddy Guy, and even got to play...
