September Call-Up set the mood right with “Angel in the Snow”; Angel Ocana got choked up on “Rose Parade”; and the crowd adding the “Because I love you” line to Burned Out Still Glowing’s stripped-down version of “Kings Crossing.” Last night local blog, Tri State Indie, hosted a beautiful but modest tribute to the late singer/songwriter Elliott Smith at the World Cafe Live. Despite his tragic story, the performance was filled with a pleasant sweetness knowing that everyone in the room was there for the same reason – their intimate connection to Smith’s music. Read up on why the handful artists wanted to be part of the tribute here. Check out a photo recap of the show below.
