Dolores and I got to hear East of Shirley play Friday night at The Java Room in Chelmsford.
They got off to a slow start in getting their playing together but did improve as the evening went along. There was one group of ladies in the corner who were clearly intent upon their own conversation (and that's okay, it is a coffeehouse) but a few times they made it difficult to appreciate the music. Once they left, the last several songs were better to listen to (both with less distraction, and the group having its act together).
I wrote a sherku.
