Haiku review

Posted By on Thu, Mar 29, 2012 at 10:37 AM

For a while there, I used to write a haiku every morning for CP's Twitter. Then I realized that I was wasting a lot of time on that, so I stopped. But I still like to engage the form sometimes — thus, some quick reviews of artists I've seen recently:

Shotgun Jimmie, Club Cafe, March 16
Samson's guitarist
was like a stand-up comic
with some decent tunes

John K. Samson, Club Cafe, March 16
Existential angst
and songs of growing-up, plus
talk about hockey

Kid Brother, Club Cafe, March 24
Heartfelt solo tunes
from Ben from Ursa Major;
talk of dental work

Jeffrey Lewis, Club Cafe, March 24
Genius songwriter
sang the illustrated tale
of Pocahontas

Doldrums, Andy Warhol Museum, March 28
Samples and synth sounds,
more Canadian banter,
charming and naive

Bear In Heaven, Andy Warhol Museum, March 28
After the show ends,
many in a daze talk of
Joe's whirlwind drumming
