TVD’s What’s in Store: Nicole Atkins at Som Records, 8/7

It was humid as all hell.

We didn’t have a 1/4″ cable. Then we ran out of beer. (Olivia Mancini on the beer run.) Then we did have a 1/4″ cable. But then Nicole through the PA wouldn’t sync.

Neal leaned over to me and said, “Get ready for some rain in 45.” Then the drops. “Let’s make that 5.”

But the rain held off long enough for Nicole Atkins outside Som Records on Sunday to make the aforementioned merely trivial.

“Cry, Cry, Cry” and its chorus—that voice—boomed off a bus wheezing to a stop at 14th & T. “Neptune City” brought the thunder. Literally.

Erica Bruce was on hand to capture it for us in photos.

    Terrific set. The arrangements on her CD are good, but her acoustic set was better. Nicole, could you please sell us unplugged versions?

    I was at the show, Nicole was amazing!
