Dave & Phil Alvin @ The Aladdin Theater

My ears are still ringing from Dave and Phil Alvin's incredible and incredibly loud show at the Aladdin Theater last night. The volume of the show was somewhat unexpected given the first section of the performance, which was relatively subdued. This only served as build-up to the indescribably energetic songs later in the night. One song featured such a long interlude that Dave Alvin remarked from the stage that the audience could go for a meal and return before it was over. There was also an unbelievable drum solo by a female, which made me smile because my twin sister is a drummer and I thought of her. Another stand-out was a song about their brotherly feud. I do not know what started the bad blood between them, but I am very glad it has ended. The Alvin Brothers are one of the best duos in music today.

  1. I enjoyed parts of the show, but overall, it was way too loud. The sound was geared more for Waterfront Park, not for such a small venue.
    I love their music and they put on a great show, but it would have been more enjoyable if it didn't hurt my ears! Plus, at that volume there was a lot of distortion.
