The Necessities were back to play a laid back set of thought provoking acoustic based folk/ rock music at the Slice, Jan.12. The room was near capacity right from the beginning of the show.
The Necessities played superb versions of their original music. They were very tight considering they hadn’t played together for about a year before this past couple of weeks.
But a trimmed down Cosmic Charley almost stole the show with an incendiary set of funk flavoured fun rock.
The trimmed down trio played an energetic set of original material, inlcuding much of it from their CD and added in a couple new songs as well.
As usual the intricate bass lines were the highlight of the show. And the groove was aunstoppable. I was surprised nomody was dancing.
“Something In My Eye,” was one of my highlights as was a solid cover of Weezer’s “Sweater” song.
They left the rambunctious crowd calling for more, but they made way for the Necessities, who slowed down things a lot, leaving the crowd lost in their groove.
