In Pictures: Mike Watt + Il Sogno De Marinaio, Virals, Skewwhiff + The Broken Oak Duet Live @ The Marrs Bar

March 17, 2013

 Thursday February 28th, Circuit Sweet traveled to Worcester to join the company of the legendary Mike Watt. The man needs no introduction. Joining Mike was his new band Il Sogno de Marinaio – the latest musical venture from ex-Minutemen bassist. A highly respected figure in contemporary music and the embodiment of the D.I.Y punk spirit, Watt is regarded as being one of the most original and influential bassists of all time. His four-decade spanning career has seen him utilize this legendary status and bring in a full crowd of adoring fans and musicians looking up to Mike. The performance given by Mike, drummer Andrea Belfi and guitarist stefano pilia was nothing short of mezmerising- simply authentic, passionate, tentative and powerful. Supporting Il Sogno De Marinaio saw the likes of the powerful Worcester power-pop Virals (Mike is the influential bassist, but second best is Danny Meigh and to see him perform with such an iconic bassist was rightly due) think grunge beach boys, Worcester’s talented and soulful Skewwhiff who provided an upbeat and melodic performance and an instrumental duo who opened the show and stole our hearts- The Broken Oak Duet are on the edge of stealing Don Cab’s fanbase.
