Sarah rocks!

We've come to expect a rockin' show by Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles, and last night at the Lizard Lounge she did not disappoint. After debuting her new video for her song "Stop and Think It Over," which had a fun '50s-type girl band feel to it, she proceeded to blister her way through a set of songs mostly from her new album "Diamonds in the Dark." Sarah and the band are so much more polished even from a year ago when we last saw her. The band just really hammers every song, and Sarah is just a great presence in front of it all. She and her bass player Binky have great personalities and keep things light, while drummer Robert Larry Dulaney smiles his way through each tune. And I've left guitar player extraordinaire Mike Castellana for last because he deserves special attention. His electric and pedal-steel playing is ferocious and tasteful at the same time. If you have a chance to catch these guys, do it! To see more pics, click HERE. To view a couple of clips click HERE and HERE.

Yes, I was there at the Friday show and it was a rockin' good time, as expected. I was very impressed by the Blueheels from Wisconsin, who opened. Definitely check them out, if you get a chance.

I agree that there's no weak link in Sarah's band. They are all great.
