Despite the torrential downpour that occurred yesterday evening from 6-7 PM, our pop-up show/video shoot with Mornin' Old Sport was awesome. We originally planned to gather in the Back Bay Fens, but because of the weather we made a last-minute move, ultimately ending up in some random tunnel on Mass Ave between a GNC and a post office. It totally worked though: the band played four songs for a crowd of about 20 folks, and everyone who passed by seemed very psyched to be hearing such sweet old-timey folk tunes in an unexpected spot.
The Phoenix team captured videos, audio recordings, and tons of photos -- stay tuned for those early next week, and check out our Cellars column in next week's issue to read more about Mornin' Old Sport, and for details about the exciting future of our new pop-up show/video series.
In the mean time, check out this video of Mornin' Old Sport that the Phoenix's Ali Donohue shot at Allston DIY Fest!
