In Concert: The Week That Was

In Concert: The Week That Was

Music
One of the true bright spots of last year's bummer of a musical 2008, The Week That Was (the current solo project of Field Music's Peter Brewis) is in the midst of a brief jaunt across the Pond.  In fact, the show was billed as "Field Music Presents The Week That Was".  Last night brought them (and a trio of openers) to the rather intimate Mercury Lounge in New York City's Lower East Side.  It's the first time a Field Music-related project has hit the States since School of Language was here early last year, so I jumped at the chance to see them. But first, let's talk opening acts.  There were three of them, although I missed the first one (Monuments).  The second, Philadelphia's own Arc in Round, put on a decent performance that was unfortunately partly sunk by lousy vocal acoustics.
