Cloud City

Gray is the new Pitch Black.

Shoddy stage sound cut an apologetic and frustrated Steve Brodsky's set short last night at Great Scott, but not before he sang a lonely love song about the happy-couple-infested Copley Square ("I guess that's my cue to stay the hell away from here"), debuted a charming Stevie Wonder cover of "Yesterme, Yesteryou, Yesterday," and brought effects/guitar Cave In brah Adam McGrath on stage with him for a couple songs including a stripped version of "Down The Drain" off their new joint Perfect Pitch Black. Later, Brodsky gave away Cave In CDs for free, encouraging people to give their money to hurricane charities instead.

Crackly monitors didn't stop McGrath from stepping out of his amp's corner and up to the microphone with his new eardrum-blowing psych-rock outfit Clouds. Total package, too: celestial guitar jams, sing-scream vocals, and even a profession of love to The Wipers.
