Schuyler Fisk and Joshua Radin at Schubas

Richard and I caught the Schuyler Fisk and Joshua Radin show last night at Schubas. Schubas is a nice change of scenery from some of the other venues in town - very intimate (yay) and smoke-free (yay).

Both sets were good and Joshua (the headliner) was excellent ("These Photographs" is one of my favorite songs from 2006). But for me Schuyler sorta stole the show. She's only written a few songs (her EP is only six songs) so her set was short, but she has an incredible, sorta-smokey/bluesy voice all wrapped up in this cute petite package. She also gets extra points for playing the girlfriend in Orange County - an extremely kickass movie, btw.

After the show was over and we were weaving through the crowd, a girl stopped Richard and said, "That was a really good show!" Which was weird until we realized that she confused Richard with the band's guitar player (they don't really look anything alike, except they were both tall and wearing beanies). That was the other highlight.

I love the smoke free. I was at Subteranean last night and I left smelling like ass.

Isn't she Sissy Spacek's daughter too? Racking up the cool points that one.
