a random night of music.

travel by train at the earl

travel by train at the earl

one of the activities i forget i love so much until i do it again, is to decide on a whim to go see a local band playing at one of atlanta’s eclectic music venues. it’s been a while since i have done this, but on saturday night, i found myself drinking a cup of tea in joe’s coffee shop in east atlanta and chatting with a few people i know.

one of the had noted on facebook earlier that they might try to go see a show at the earl. i asked him about the band and he knew almost nothing about it, but well, we were right down the street, AND if you want to go see some random live music there really is no better place than the earl (see paulie’s great review on the metblog here.) the $7 cover sealed the deal for us and off we went.

we missed the opening bands, but we did catch the headliner, a local combo called travel by train. hard to completely describe their music, a soft combination of rock and soul, i guess. immense talent is on display however.

kelly taylor, who fronts that band, has an amazing voice that had to be heard to be believed and the lead guitarist is very talented as well.

i am going to be keep my eye on travel by train and heading out to see them when i can. and all because we decided on a whim to go see some music.

i need to do this more often. after all, i can walk to the earl.
