Here’s the quick story behind this video.
During soundcheck, BRR played a few seconds of Ryan Adams’ “A Kiss Before I Go.” John Dankosky heard this from his desk down the hall and said he loves the original version of this song. After we recorded the interview and performance for Friday’s Where We Live, John asked the guys if they’d play the Ryan Adams song again…for a web extra. Lead singer Chris Henderson said he had not memorized all of the lyrics but if he could have the lyrics in front of him, he’d be happy to. So JD pulled up the lyrics on his iPad (which is what Chris is looking at during this performance) and the result was a song that (in my opinion) is better than the original.
On Friday night, they played a hometown show at the Great Hall at Union Station in Hartford. I really hope more shows are held here…it’s a very cool smaller venue that is perfect for shows like these. In the near future though, that venue might be too small for BRR.
