Last time I posted about The Felice Brothers it was to express disappointment I wouldn’t be able to see them again anytime soon. However, things change and last week we made it to the show at the Mauch Chunk Opera House. I have to give thanks to a great friend (erm, you know who you are, Renee) who had been to Jim Thorpe a few times and encouraged me to make the trek there. In the end Ady and I found our way there for another Sisters Dissonance 24 hour trip/town exploration/manic dancing good time last Friday. Consensus all the way around was this was an extraordinary night and I’m so glad we didn’t miss it. Here’s a photo essay thanks to Ady’s new camera.

Shall I mention the little side adventure that found me back in Jim Thorpe two days later after a tire blew out on the highway on the way back home from Philadelphia to Cleveland? . . . needless to say, I’m home and still reveling in the good times, and in the end the tire debacle will become just a footnote.
Much love to everyone we met in Jim Thorpe, if you’re reading this thanks for making a great trip even greater. I don’t think we’ve ever visited a town where we’ve made so many friends in such a short amount of time.
As for The Felice Brothers live, you’ll read about them all over the place in days to come, I still maintain you have to see them for yourself, words and photos capture but a fraction of their contagious energy.
