Last night at Le Poisson Rouge, Maryland’s Cotton Jones played a short set of about six songs; they said most were songs they don’t play very often. I’d forgotten how many members are in this band–six, and they’re all good. Even though I prefer this venue when they clear the floor for standing room (the seating arrangement feels a little too fancy), it has fantastic acoustics and it was great to hear Cotton Jones with so much clarity. They’re playing tonight at Union Hall with Lost in the Trees, and despite a muddier sound, that will probably be the show where they’ll play the hits and let loose a little. More pictures after the jump.
