Rainy Season from Russia
Rainy Season. A few weeks ago, Shaun told me he booked another show at The Door. His band, Cut Frenzy, and a band from Russia, who have a home base here. I wondered how many people would show up. I guess we both did. No touring band to draw curious minds. Doing a thing, just because. We arrived to a packed bar. As CF played, we looked around, and saw there was nowhere to move. Rainy Season play Russian cover songs, and are damn good at what they do. Those not watching the show mingle, and in this vibe, we realize, we've got a damn good thing happening right now. It just works. The true test comes this summer, when we try and bring our favorites from China to this city, and...gasp...charge an entry fee.
Let's see what you're really made of, Dongbei. It will be worth the risk. Here's to making something out of nothing.
