Secret American.

Derek Krzywicki's Secret American, with guests from the New Connection (Philadelphia), this evening at the Foundry. They put on a great debut performance, justifiably intimidating the second opening act, Fabergege. Wish I could have witnessed Cheers Elephant in the past, but this is the present.

He seems to have expanded into the direction of stage choreography, eschewing the guitar altogether tonight and debuting a bunch of new songs with lots of backup harmonies, rhythmic and harmonic interest (although I want to hear them again soon - maybe they'll be released shortly?). This song (Facebook link) in particular sounds like a single - catchy and clever, could have easily been mistaken for a Cheers song.

Every artist has their reasons for trying something new.
