Live at "Secret Headquarters": June 3rd, 2006

Shiny around the Edges were a huge contrast to the openers. This duo held back piece by piece until there was nothing left but a lonely sorrowful voice. They referred to one song as "Song for Chris Flemmons to Sing" and I was really glad he wasn't there to sing it. They also had help from a guy who played Lap Steel as a guest. This was the best part of the set. One song just peeled back its layers until it was nothing but the female vocalist and the lap steel harmonizing together, and I would have really enjoyed a whole performance based around that. Shortly after their set started, the place was packed. It seemed very much like a couple of the times I witnessed Art Prostitute spilling out into the street during an event.
