You should be happy to know that Seth Wonkka did NOT kick my ass at this weekend’s Rocking Horse Music Festival. If you don’t know the history; go back and read a few articles from the past week. This Saturday Seth was playing with his band in Bicentennial Square- along with about 10 other bands that day. I was excited to see him play, and also hoping to leave with all my teeth. I was introduced to Seth prior to his set and I was extremely disappointed. He was a nice guy. What the hell. I was hoping for him to call me names, toss a drink in my face and spit in my eye- nope- none of it. I mean, I didn’t WANT those things to happen but it makes a much more exciting story to read. Instead I am left with having to tell you how awesome his music was that day.
The live performance was amazing. I mean- it was spectacularly wonderful. However, I am not gonna talk about the live show. I want to talk about something else. After his set Seth gave me a gift. No, not an uncomfortably long hug… he gave me a CD of his music. Two CD’s to be exact. Each CD is the same except for the color. When I got in my car and listened to the music Seth and his band created, I was blown away. It was mountainous and exciting. It is the type of music you want to play while riding in a car with a beautiful girl. It is happy-yet sad. I also love that about half the tunes are in 6/8 time. I LOVE 6/8 time. Something about it makes me giddy. The music does a great job of painting a picture of a relationship from start to finish. It runs from the loving start, to the fights, to forgiveness, to not being perfectly imperfect for each other. It is the type of music you want playing while making out…. Or maybe while beating her pants off at Play Station 3.
Seth is taking a short break from playing out as a full band to concentrate on a duo project with Lydia Lyon. I suggest going out and seeing them perform live- or pick up one of his CDs- You won’t be disappointed.
