We went to see Ceramic Dog at Creative Alliance last night. We saw then in 2021, too. This time, they had seating, so the atmosphere was more subdued. Marc Ribot was playing his black Gibson SG, and he broke two strings during the second to last song. Ches improved a bit before the encore, and I loved it.
I love this trio – there’s a lot of energy, and a lot of improvisation. I think that’s why they always sit facing each other.
