* w/ Margot and the Nuclear So & So’s
Whispertown is on tour. New to them? Check out this Getting To Know Morgan Nagler.
Margot & the Nuclear So and So's
So again, there was no Margot in the band.
I was there to cover Whispertown, aka Whispertown2000, so I took notes on the band. The band is traveling light, reducing them to just Morgan Nagler and her guitarist (sorry, she never introduced him). They did a standard opening short thirty minute set, consisting of seven songs.
I didn't know them well enough to tell you all the songs, but what I can tell you is that they started off with two songs from Parallel ("Open The Other Eye" and "Time Will Welcome Anything"), followed by 'old' songs, "Erase The Lines", "Restless". They ended their set with "The Everybody".
Banter was kept to a minimum; they said they were last in Minneapolis with Margot at the same venue, Triple Rock. They also, apparently, hit a deer, driving up here. I guess they're not used to deer on the roads in California.
This was the second stop in their month-long tour schedule, so check them out if they're coming to your town. Whispertown's Parallel is out now via Acony Records.
