Event Review: Chris Barron Live @ The Paradise
Boston, January 20, 2007
Artist: Chris Barron
Event: Chris Barron @ The Paradise, Boston, MA
Date: January 20, 2007
Having broken up his practice with the Spin Doctors, trippy troubadour Chris Barron was back at it for another round of email lists and brand new songs, peppered with his signature sneering twang and few fan faves.
Charming and humble, Barron repeatedly professed that he and his simply talented rhythm section (drummer Phil Trevino and bassist Tim Gibbons) were “unqualified to do anything else,” and were thus left to offer their musical gifts.
From the hi-end whispers and lo-end groove of “Heartbreak Boulevard” to the gentler jangle and aching arcs of “Can’t Break the Habit” and the drowsy “Louisiana Holiday,” Barron revealed new sides to his musical repertoire before falling back on the familiar through a slowed down “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong,” that got the crowd even more into the set.
Aside from a few mumbly pieces, Barron’s set was clear and well-directed, ending with a mutually-gratifying, extended romp through “Two Princes” that featured a rousing clap- and sing-along coda that extended itself into an appreciative and appreciated ovation.
As he took his deep bows, Barron made it clear with his easy smile that he was fully “back” and ready to give it another go in this crazy business called show.
