REVIEW: Fulero + Day’s Elliott Smith Tribute @ Sam Bond’s (Eugene, OR – 1/23/10)

24th Jan 10 (Sun) Leave a comment Go to comments

I had two shows last night… first was the Bill Frisell Trio.  I’ll post that review later today (or first thing Monday morning).  After the show I rode over to Sam Bond’s Garage and got there right around 9:30.  There was Elliott Smith music already going on.  I was confused, as I knew the band was supposed to be a duo, but this was just one guy doing Elliott Smith tunes.  I found at after the fact that I had walked in on the first song (yay!).  I guess the Elliott Smith tribute duo of Fulero + Day had an Elliott Smith solo tributer go before them.  I caught him name as Scotty Paray, but the spelling may be suspect.  No doubling up on songs, from what I stuck around for…

Scotty Paray’s Setlist

  • Son of Sam
  • Can’t Make a Sound
  • Happiness
  • Alameda
  • A Living Will
  • Miss Misery

Scotty was good, switched between keyboard and guitar.  Perhaps not all that strong in the vocal category, but Elliott’s songs shone through, and Scotty’s effort was evident (the crowd was a bit noisy/talky, though).  Fulero + Day came on shortly after Scotty was done.  It was Asher Fulero on keyboard and Nathan Day on guitar.  They switched off in the vocal category.  Great tribute, and again, despite the noisy crowd, Elliott’s songs shone through.

Fulero + Day’s Setlist

  • Pretty (Ugly Before)
  • Bottle Up and Explode
  • No Name #4
  • Clementine
  • Rose Parade
  • Sweet Adeline
  • Coast to Coast
  • Baby Britain
  • Somebody’s Baby
  • (…the show continued whereas I didn’t…)

I left around 10:30pm… partly because it had been a long day, but a lot to do with the annoying, loud & talky crowd.  I caught an hour of great songs that made me remember seeing Elliott play many of them himself back in 2000 at Southgate House in Newport, KY.  He is missed.
