GOG III: RISE
The third Garden Of Groove entitled "Rise" was beyond what any of us expected. The communion of talent and energy on stage was unlike anything we thought we could create. As the band entered into its last song, "Last Days" (fittingly enough), the tune has sort of a melancholy drone that seems almost Armageddon ish. Very end of times lyrically and sonically unsettling for the first movement. Then the song gives way to a Latin fused groove that sends the vibe rocketing up. So far UP that it began to rain. And rain.
The band played on. Equipment soaked. Band soaked. Everyone seeking shelter.
Earth By Train eventually ended their song simply stating .. "we have to go"
But. "We'll be back, thank you"
And be back they shall..
