Derek Webb & Page CXVI at True West

The lovely Robin and I joined Aaron and Nina tonight for a truly wonderful night at our favorite coffeehouse, True West on Main Street in Hamilton.

We were all there for a night of live music, featuring Page CXVI, a group that also records as Autumn Film. They kicked off the night with a couple unique hymn settings and some original songs.

After a brief break, Derek Webb came out and performed a twenty-minute (or so) request set that included a couple of my favorites, "I Repent" and "This Too Shall Be Made Right."

Then, joined by Page CXVI, he launched into a full-length set of his new recording, CTRL, a concept album (as all his work is these days) reflecting his concerns about our reliance on technology and its effects on our lives.

It was a wonderful evening of two-and-a-half hours (plus) of great music. And the company was pretty doggone good, too. And for it all to take place just a few miles from our home, in little ol' Hamilton, Ohio...priceless!
