Last night marked Cassavettes’ return to cowboy territory. Armed with sunburst guitars, plaid western shirts, and a “kickin’ it” attitude, the Massachusetts Americana-rockers sold their souls to the crowd at Rubber Gloves in Denton. It was a very intimate show, with an audience of old friends, familiar faces and family, and Cassavettes needed no time for reacquainting, blasting “Carolyn, Don’t Leave Like This” and setting the tone for the rest of the evening. Conversations were held mid-set and drunken friends were brought onstage during the memorable performance of songs from “Whitewash the Blues” and “It’s Gonna Change,” as well as new songs and an impromptu version of co-frontman Glenn Yoder’s “Set Free,” complete with viola. Highlights: Scott Jones’ bass-swinging, “The Nadir.”
I sat down with Cassavettes and shot what is now becoming the obligatory Mass Culture portrait:
As well as many other shots from their set, which you can see after the jump.
