Our (in)famous grey Februarys always get me down, but this years couldnt have been all that soul-crushing, judging by the Reverb entry I made on February 2nd: At Georgetown spot Jules Maes on Friday, No-Fi Soul Rebellions male half, Mark Heimer, worked his way around the room with a cordless mike, getting up in peoples faces; his wife, Andrea, played guitar while lying on her back. Mark then commanded people to get low and get lower!! until everyone was literally lying on the floor with Andrea. And what happened next still baffles methe duos groovebox started playing Enigmas Return to Innocenceand the whole damn place sang along to the chorus. Repeatedly. Uh-yi-yi-aaiii-oh-i-yah-yah. . . . Anything else I could say about the band pales. Theyre the wildest wild card in town. Tonight, with Katharine Hepburns Voice and Kiss Her for the Kid (CD release).
