Matana Roberts @ The Stone 8/9/09

I was gonna go to Charlie but then I realized I couldn't resist this ensemble. It was excellent! It got pretty intense at times. After all, 2/3 of Ceramic Dog was in the house. It was brilliant, albeit short. The set was about 40-45 minutes. I thought it was pretty comfortable in there, but I had been to a few hot nights there, so that may be why. Matana had a lot of clothes on, and was really playing, so her experience was understandable.

Whatever the length, every moment was phenomenal and I left very happy with my choice.
