Emily and Simple Citizens get five million points for exemplifying everything good that could be written about transformation and transition on a stage.
There are beats tied up in the space and talking between songs, in Emily's taking up instrument after instrument like they were her best best friends, in Daniel Byers reaching for his trumpet, Sam Halterman laughing and an upright bass waiting to be picked up.
Yay for inexplicable bad-ass alchemy between musicians, for bands on the road, and for people seriously loving what they're doing.
Kiss Orsolya got some sweet and occasionally hilarious photos from this night, and did as good a job of capturing it as I could have imagined any photographer doing.
