Matt Jones/Chris Bathgate, Rescue at The Litter Box, Oct. 14

Mmmm... I love house shows. Casual, comfortable, friendly. Saturday's show at the Litterbox in Lansing didn't disappoint. Despite a few minor technical difficulties (certain equipment getting unplugged during a rush to the kitchen for liquid refreshments), the show was just fantastic.

Matt and Chris complemented each other very well playing and singing together for their set. These are two of the most amazing songwriters I've heard recently, and it was great to hear a combined repertoire.

(There was also a guest appearance by a strange little Halloween gnome)

If you haven't heard the music of Chris Bathgate, go listen immediately. His voice is so … .

I will admit, when I last saw Rescue back in February, I didn't love the music. However their performance last night TOTALLY hooked me. The new songs they played from the upcoming record (released on Suburban Sprawl Music) sound amazing. Sexy vocals. Energetic performers. I'm all about this band right now.

Be sure to check out these bands in the next few weeks before they both head out on tour.
