November 2006 brought us a Democratic victory in the midterm elections, Tony Romo throwing five touchdowns for the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving and Marco Benevento playing five Wednesday shows as part of his residency at the legendary former club, Tonic. As far as I know, that’s all that happened.
Benevento mixed the five shows into a three-disc set, and the must-get Live at Tonic debuted yesterday. Special guests on the live album include Mike Gordon, Steven Bernstein, Dave Driewitz, Reed Mathis, Matt Chamberlain, Bobby Previte, Sir Joe Russo, Mike Dillon, Scott Metzger, Claude Coleman and Brad Barr. We’re not shills, but this is a live release that will get much rotation on my iPod.
