Keenans play April Fools Day

E-mail Print PDF

No fooling, there were  a couple excellent April Fool’s day shows  beginning with guitarist/singer Tom and keyboardist/singer Patrick Keenan aka Captain Keenan, who took turns playing laid back country folk songs from their new solo CDs, backed by a drummer and bassist who filled out their sound.

Highlights were ‘Washed Out Road’, the title track of Patrick Keenan’s new CD and 100 Hours from Tom Keenan. Plus the bass line made Patrick Keenan’s  ’If You’re Curious,’ as well as  ’Tobacco.’ which ended their first set.
Patrick Keenan added some catchy piano throughout while his brother added guitar solos and textures.

Local bluesman Steve Keenan,  who usually plays  with his band Fat Baby Jake, opened the show with an all acoustic set including plenty of his originals as well as as some Nirvana and grunge era covers.

 I wanted to check out B.A. Johnston and the Moby Dicks at Henotic as well, but only caught the last song from the Moby Dicks, which had everyone on their feet. I left to check out more of the Keenans, intending to return for B.A Johnston, but found the show cut short after one of Henotic’s patrons seriously injured himself by putting his fist through a window. He was taken to hospital and is currently in stable condition.
