Midge Crickett set the bar high for the rest of the acts to follow. I had never heard of her until Saturday, however, she said she plays a number of showcases and shows. It is hard to explain her style, as it is a unique display. She told stories of how her songs about bank overdraw, telemarketing, being the “best in the burgh,” and reverse-vampires came to be. Such a commentary sent ripples of chuckles through the small audience, and ultimately warmed up the audience as any good opening act should.
Saturday night was thoroughly enjoyable the moment Midge Crickett started until I had helped Enlou with loading up the last bits of their equipment. I advise that you not miss an opportunity to go to Most Wanted for shows, or pass up a chance to see any of the bands on the bill.
