Dave Simonett Joins Charlie Parr At First Avenue: Pro-Shot Video
Charlie Parr was joined by Trampled by Turtles guitarist Dave Simonett last night during a performance at First Avenue in Minneapolis. The concert was part of the ongoing weekly “Charlie Parr & Friends” Sunday night residency at First Ave.
Parr began the show with a batch of songs he performed solo. Bassist Liz Draper, who has regularly joined Parr during the residency, once again emerged mid-set and remained for the duration, switching between upright and electric bass.
A few songs later, Simonett joined Parr and Draper and the trio then played Parr’s “Union Tramp.” The traditional “Samson & Delilah” came next, followed by Parr’s “Wild Bill Jones.” Between songs, Simonett and Parr shared stories of past adventures together on the road. The collaboration continued with more banter and Parr’s “Old Dog Blue,” “Just Like Today” and the set-closing “Nineteen Twenty Two Blues.” The evening was capped with an instrument-less “Ain’t No Grave.”
Parr’s First Ave residency concludes this Sunday, January 31. Simonett and Trampled by Turtles recently recorded a series of performances at First Ave that will stream each Thursday in February.
