Mount Eerie, Little Wings, Key Losers, and Nicholas Krgovich in the Mission last night was one of those shows that could not be entered with any expectations. It was a completely unknown venue (which turned out to be an upcoming free radical K-12 school, Brightworks), and featured a few completely unpredictable performers — Mount Eerie and Little Wings — both of whom either plan for, or spontaneously provide, the most unpredictable one-off sets. Key Losers features Katy Davidson, a longtime San Franciscan, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone collaborator and core member of Dear Nora, but it was opening act Nicholas Krgovich who stole the show, donning a Sade shirt that explained his musical influences and contributing to the sets that followed his own.
Highlights of the night included the amazing local artwork decorating the large open-studio space (see Leopold and His Fiction piece, below), homemade honey ginger wine from Living Arts Fund, taking home an amazing letterpressed show poster, and, of course, an uncanny cover of “Human Nature” from Kyle Field/Little Wings. The Olympia music scene was in the house.
