Reni Lane @ Iota

The lively and charismatic Reni Lane opened for Civil Twilight tonight at Iota to a decent sized crowd for a chilly Monday night. Sadly I missed her performance, which I'm sure was fun since last time I caught her show she had spunky stage presence and catchy pop/rock beats.

Reni just released her new album Ready, of which the lead song Place For Us is pleasantly stuck in my head. I'm looking forward to getting a hold of her themed t-shirts!

First time for me to watch Civil Twilight in action, and I was very impressed. Their energetic and polished sound took over the small venue by force. I also liked how Andrew McKellar used a bow to accent his guitar strumming ala violin style, and how the lead singer and brother Steve also played bass.
