That was great, hitting the mindless waves of the solar flow in an ease of motion. Then all hell broke loose. IT became electrified. I remember that trip from another hit I found in Wildrose. The surfing became more intense. This was no longer just planet hopping. IT became plasmatic in sound and rhythm. You had to keep up, or fall off. This fix of Wildrose became more than a planet hop. I felt super nomadic, that I have to hit the surf in a violent action to stay on the trip.
Rise and Shine! I felt like a mad cow nomad again, planet skipping, not hopping. Like a ricochet rabbit protecting the universe. But wait! I’m still in Griffith, Indiana, home of the region, at the local craft style brewery “Wildrose Brewing”! Hark, what to the angels here? The “Nomad Planets”!!!
Okay, I can get a little crazy with this at times. If I did not, it would not be me. Nomad Planets hit the stage this night and I listened and photographed while drinking my Mad Cow. Definitely a lot of surf type songs going on this night, which began my head trip about Nomad Planets.
The set started with Mark playing acoustic. A bit of a change up from what my bride Christi and I had seen from the band and it was nice. They played three of their new songs too. I do not recall the song titles, however I liked them all, and especially the second song. Mark commented to me he felt he did not do well on the song. Me, I actually enjoyed it the most. The rhythm from John, with drums and base all playing background, left Mark up front and different than the rest. That subtle separation of rhythm and melody, even if Mark felt off, is what sold it for me. Do it again, Mark! (I say.)
