The Autumn Defense Heated Up a Winter Night

Seeing The Autumn Defense was a great way to get warm on a chilly, pre-storm evening!

They played to a small (100 people, I’d guess) but enthusiastic crowd at Great Scott last Wednesday night.  The Autumn Defense comprises John Stirratt and Pat Sansone from Wilco, as well as a drummer, keyboardist, and bassist (whose names I could not find).

I am not extremely familiar with this band’s music (although I do know and love Wilco), but I enjoyed their style. I sensed that John and Pat truly enjoy playing at intimate clubs.

They played original songs that spanned their career, but ended with a wonderful rendition of Bob Welch’s (as well as Fleetwood Mac’s) “Sentimental Lady” which is one of my favorite songs.

These are not the best photos – I was farther back than I prefer and the lighting was low – and I apologize.

I really enjoyed this show and would like to see them again after I become better acquainted with their music!

I've loved the arts all my life... I go to a lot of concerts, take lots of photos and want to share them. Every once in a while I do something other than a concert, too. The Boston area is full of opportunities to indulge my passion - I'd like to help make it yours too!
