Rainbow & The Serpent

It was hot in that little room last night, Open Hand played a nice set and seared through 10 songs at the Rainbow Bar and Grill. Hardly any circulation in that place, but the energy was there nonetheless. The highlights of the set were the new songs, BUT they were the same ones that they played at Spaceland on 1/4 of this year. I was hoping more newer songs, but that was all in their repertoire for this evening.

I didn't get a chance to ask, but Alex Organ is not in the Hand. The drummer who did play though had a small electronic pads to activate samples from the album--that was a bonus for me. They had the intro to the album for "Herons," "Cool's intro from the movie Parenthood, and the BIg Trouble in Little China sample in "Hard Night."

More personnel changes: 1 of the Angels was dropped, the short Asian girl was not there as well.

I'm pretty excited for this album to drop and will pre-order the album next week Monday on the 15th. The album will be released on April 20th and remember folks, Open Hand is not releasing the album, but Anodyne Records is. Hence, the record label is responsible for releasing this. The band is just responsible for the music, not the politics behind the album.

I'll try to splice the show tonight and upload till then. Take care all!
