As I type the 2016 FRZN Fest is underway at the High Noon Saloon. The winter festival is now in its fifth year of trying to lure folks out of their homes to brave the cold.

I’ve never been and most of the bands are completely foreign to me. I played music trivia at the High Noon earlier this week (and we took first place, I don’t mind telling you) where FRZN Fest artists were played as we endeavored to come up with the correct answers. And so I’ve sought out the bands in this year’s line-up and come up with a couple shows.

I found a show by All Them Witches who hail from Nashville. The band is:

Robby Staebler – drums
Michael Park, Jr. – bass, vocals, guitar
Ben McLeod – guitar
Allan Van Cleave – keyboards

While I have not yet listened to this entire show, I have heard a couple songs and the band has a heavy psych-rock sound – very 60s sounding. So far, so good.

This is their show from last month on the 3rd. It was at the Boot & Saddle in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is a very good audience recording. Sadly, there are people chatting near the recorder but it’s not too distracting.

Setlist:
Mountain
The Marriage of Coyote Woman
The Death of Coyote Woman
Call Me Star
Open Passageways
Dirt Preachers
Blood and Sand/Milk and Endless Waters
Charles William
Swallowed by the Sea
Funeral For a Great Drunken Bird
When God Comes Back
