Andrew's searing hot fingers

Having just reviewed The Last True Gentlemen's recently released EP, I decided to drop by Lee's Palace on Friday to check out their live show. I'll keep this short since I just wrote about them. Other than a few dedicated fans or friends, the people that filled only less than half of Lee's Palace started out fairly cold toward the band. But everyone was listening, and the trio of players turned it on.

Friendly faces were obviously visible from the stage as Andrew quickly acknowledged a few of the people who had come out to support their band. After about 4 songs, some skilled guitar, piano, and vocals by Andrew and an seriously amazing display of drumming by Mark, the crowd really warmed up and starting cheering like they meant it.

Mark steals the spotlight

For the last song they performed Haven't You Heard, which is my favorite track off of their EP. For the final guitar solo, Andrew's fingers were moving so fast that my friends and I were joking that he must have a rare neurological disorder. This performance brought a group of people out onto the floor who shouted for an encore (which, due to the tight schedule, they were not permitted to play).
