(also with my friends for going, even though it was well past many of their bedtimes and they may not have been as enamored with the performance.)
i think the trachtenburgs are so great not because of songwriting ability or the novelty of their act, but because they really believe in being postmodern folksingers and seem to love what they're doing. they are earnest and rather funny and that translates to a endearing performance. i hope that new yorkers in the audience will check them out when they play shows at FEZ every Saturday in August.
on the way out, i grabbed a handful of slides and got an autograph from Rachel, the nine-year-old drummer, on a selection of color slides titled "The Ginza in Tokyo." Rawk.
