Kevin Seconds At New Brookland Tavern
Thursday, Sept. 23
Creative souls evolve. And, so has Kevin Seconds. Donâ€™t worry, itâ€™s a good thing. Mohawked 1980â€™s reenactors shouldnâ€™t show up at New Brookland in their leather jackets and expect to hear acoustic versions of â€œWalk Together, Rock Together.â€ These days, Mr. Seconds is expressing himself in the form of a grizzled troubadour playing up-tempo acoustic ramblers. Basically, the kind of stuff youâ€™d expect to hear Kevin Seconds or Tim Barry or Jeff Ott play if you passed them an acoustic guitar around a backyard fire. Who wouldnâ€™t want to hear that? One of the undergroundâ€™s greats reducing his songs down to their elemental core, letting it come out how it comes out. (In essence, the original defining characteristic of punk and hardcore.)
Conversely, Kevin Seconds: donâ€™t show up in Columbia and expect the ape shit crowds that 7 Seconds used to draw at Rockafellas back in the day. But, we will show up â€“geezers and newbies alikeâ€”to pay our respects and have a lot of fun.
