SIMGE On The Scene: Thee Idea Men, Sam Pace & The Battery Electric Played Happy Mondays

Phil Shepherd June 22, 2016 Live, Reviews No Comments

The official summer solstice hit on a perfect night and brought with it a sweltering Happy Mondays to open the week. 

Coming in from Philly, Thee Idea Men opened the night with a slew of new material and the celebration of a birthday for Guitarist Matt Raspanti. 

Traveling up from Texas and bringing some fine southern blues with them, Sam Pace and the Gilded Grit stopped by while on a three month tour of the country. We closed out the night with The Battery Electric who provided us with some new material of their own, offering us a little Motown soul in the middle of their bombastic set. 

The front lights on stage right were out and totally messed with me, so a few more black and white images than normal. It was a cave over there and because I am stubborn, well, lets leave it at that. 

The choice selections from the evening:
