Picture Show: Daniel Folmer Album Release at the Hydrant Cafe
Daniel Daugherty

Daniel Folmer and Doug Burr played Denton's Hydrant Cafe last night, to celebrate the release of Folmer's new CD, The Roaring Twenties. And they brought along the Burnt Sienna Trio and Glen Farris with them, the latter of whom got the ball rolling around 10 p.m. and deserves some credit for setting the mood for the night (particularly with his mournful rendition of "Man of Constant Sorrow"). Photos from the show are up in our slideshow here.

The venue itself, The Hydrant Cafe, is hardly larger than most folks' living rooms and contributed to the informal atmosphere. So did the kitchen, which served as a staging area for the bands' gear. (Speaking of the kitchen, I must parenthetically mention that, spoon or no spoon, Folmer seems quite a fan of potato soup.) And while the lighting was a pain to work with (see my photos), I couldn't help thinking that acoustics were pretty damn good. Burr even went so far as to call them "beautiful."

Catch Folmer again tonight at Good Records for a free in-store performance with Dust Congress and Nervous Curtains. The show starts at 7.
