Diet Soul Stew

November was an interesting month. Sometimes you order meals to your liking, but other times you have to mix and match ingredients on your own. Since we hadn't had a proper serving of Soul Stew since August, we had to make our own, first with two Derek Trucks shows and the next week with Susan Tedeschi at the so-called Fillmore Theater at Irving Plaza. This is a rather sad attempt to tie Irving Plaza with the sadly-demolished Fillmore East, but the place is cool and it's nice seeing Bill Graham's memorabilia displayed.

Susan's opening act was 50s-styled Brit boogie artist James Hunter who put on a top notch set:

Susan put on a great set, with a lot of material from her new release Back to the River but also a nice spectrum of back catalog numbers and covers.

It was a fun show, and my first of hopefully many trips to "Irving Plaza". It's a fun place, check it out!
