Last night, the inaugural show went down at the brand-new, highly anticipated West Side watering hole The Stone Fox. Post-rock songstress Cortney Tidwell played a solo set (with a vocal assist from Tristen), and psychedelic, experimental trio Sao Paulo Underground skronked, blipped and blooped their way through some Latin- and electronic-skewing jazz numbers. And while all of the music was rich, cerebral and occasionally challenging, the true headliner of the evening was The Stone Fox itself. We are happy to report that the vibe, decor, stage, sound, drinks, food and lighting are all top-shelf. One of our cohorts did comment that he found the sound during SPU's set to be a little bright, but if you show me a full room in which no one has any complaints about the sound, I'll show you a room that isn't located in Nashville.
As you'll see below and at this link, the Cream did in fact dispatch trusty shutterbug Steve Cross to get some shots of the bands and the Fox itself. Again, here's the link to the slideshow. Have a look. Congrats to the folks of The Stone Fox. I imagine we'll be seeing a lot more of one another.
