Show Review - Mr Gnome - Bloomfield Bridge Tavern - 7/17/09 - Concert Review

Really good show last night. The BBT is a converted Polish restaurant that hosts bands on Friday/Saturday. It doesn't have the best sound but what it does have is an intimate setting for you to watch any show. Mr Gnome was the second the time they went on there were approximately 60 people to see the show. We were waiting at the bar near the entrance while the first band played. A female in a Mr Gnome shirt (complete with her own tailoring) tried to get in but she had forgotten her id. I guess the venue has a strict +21 policy because she definitely looked old enough. It was a shame as you could feel the disappointment.

I am not going to go through the whole set list but Mr Gnome played about 4 songs off their new album that will be coming out in October. All of them came across fantastic with the sound of a band maturing. I don't think I have ever seen someone hit the snare drum so hard and repetitive as Sam does. Its something to see. We took some pictures and video which are below (not great since we aren't professional photographers). Also, Nicole and Sam (Mr Gnome) are 2 of the nicest people you will ever want to come across. Both were gracious and just happy to talk with fans. I really hope they make it to a larger audience. They definitely are deserving.


  1. Damn, I was right across the street! What time did they play. Wanda was done at 12:10...I would have definitely come over to check it out. That room is a cave for taking photos though. Yours aren't bad at all for the situation.

  2. wish you would have. you take way better pics. they were winding up probably right around then.
