Yesterday was my first full day of Summer in the City concerts in 2011. Thursday shows start with an 11am soundcheck at the Kendall Square Concert Series and finish at 9pm after the last set at Harborwalk Sounds at the ICA.
Both concerts were great. The members of il abanico, who performed for both shows, will be graduating this summer and then touring the states from Boston to their new home in Los Angeles.
The group has an amazing repertoire, being able to perform for 2hours with primarily their own material and tight aranagements of covers. Everyone I spoke to about their performance was impressed by their musicality and sound.
