Erika Hughes & the Well Mannered (1/9/15)

What a great way to start a new year of live music!  A friend mentioned a show at the Barking Spider, which is what tipped me off to this particular night.  I recruited a friend and we made it a night in Uptown, first having dinner at the Happy Dog @ the Euclid Tavern (still waiting to catch my first show there!).  We then bared the bitter cold to the Barking Spider, though I truly enjoy a snowy evening at the Spider as much I enjoy Summer nights.  

Erika Hughes and the Well Mannered were a group of young musicians from Columbus, OH, though they sounded years beyond their age = superb.  They had an incredible multi-instrumentalist, but that was rivaled by having two strong female vocals.  Oh did I mention they had an upright bass and a full drum set.  This band was packing, and they knew how to play.  The crowd was quite receptive and made for an incredible night of live music.
