Picture Show: Daniel Folmer Album Release at the Hydrant Cafe
The venue itself, The Hydrant Cafe, is hardly larger than most folks' living rooms and contributed to the informal atmosphere. So did the kitchen, which served as a staging area for the bands' gear. (Speaking of the kitchen, I must parenthetically mention that, spoon or no spoon, Folmer seems quite a fan of potato soup.) And while the lighting was a pain to work with (see my photos), I couldn't help thinking that acoustics were pretty damn good. Burr even went so far as to call them "beautiful."
