fathom bistro, bait & tackle, shelter island
six out of five stars!
so my mom, my cousin lou and i get out of the car and we’re sitting right there, chatting with the record label people (who had parked right behind us) and after a minute, i turned my head to see a red big car with k. flay kind of squatting in the front seat playing her guitar and getting ready to go on to the show! it was so funny to see her right there warming up. and hearing her voice, it’s it’s an amazing… like, she’s got an amazing kind of talent with her voice! and it’s fresh it’s new and it’s different and that’s what we like to see with new songs and bands and concerts.
so we walk up the pier and it’s not the like… it’s not 3000 people or anything, but it’s a good 30 or 40 people there, um, kind of either getting a drink at fathom bistro, or trying to find some bait and tackle – ha ha ha – or other supplies that you’ll need to go fishing. (it truly is the coolest tiny beer bar & restaurant right on a pier with EXCELLENT beers on tap consistently – pliny the elder, anyone? – and it has its own bait and tackle shop too!) and one of the guys who works in the 91X radio station (zach, our afternoon guy) while the concert was going on was fishing while listening to this person’s concert! that’s funny!
so everybody kind of mellows out, we got to chitchat for a while, talk about what’s going on in our lives, and a bunch of people set up for the k. flay concert. there were cameras, mics, and action all going on right there. and then my mom started off with a welcome gesture and tells us about what could happen (i just said a little welcome to the crowd on behalf of 91X and introduced k. flay), so we prepared ourselves for this wonderful outstanding concert coming up by k. flay!
so everybody’s kind of sitting around, she got her guitar ready and she has a partner with her and they start strumming their guitars and played their first song which was “high enough.” second, they played “paris” (??) and third they played “blood in the cut” which is personally my favorite now! and it was really kind of chill, everybody was just sitting and watching it it was a really fun experience. her voice is so different than what you would expect from an artist whose voice it’s so new, and it’s got something that i don’t think i’ve heard from any other artist before. it’s amazing! she’s very talented, very brave, very, um, out there and i think she’s ready to move onto her next album!
at the end and me and my family went up and got to meet her. she is so so nice, like unbelievably nice and she would stay in there to get photos and she’s very energetic and she was totally not like shy or kind of like acting like she was too perfect. she was actually really really nice and i do hope i get to see her again! i would definitely write this down as a 6 out of 5 concert stars! thank you and hope you guys enjoyed the blog.
