I needed that

At its best, live rock 'n roll possesses a healing power that the best medicine can never hope to attain. With the proper blend of melody, notes, rhythm, and most importantly, attitude and energy, a rock show has the power to cleanse the soul and mend the spirit.

Few bands have a clue how to reach those lofty levels. But one band that does masterfully impress and excite its fans with unrelenting energy is Marah. I saw them perform at T.T. The Bear's in Cambridge on Sunday, and they were, as expected, incredible.

I took some pictures, and while they can't possibly capture the show's vibe, they're still worth seeing.

Serge takes over lead-singing duties.

Understanding that rock 'n roll is about rebellion, Dave violates Cambridge's smoking ban.

It's fantastic to see them in such small, intimate settings, and I keep crossing my fingers that they'll add some tour dates west of the Mississippi soon.

(Hopefully not Santa Fe again, though).

I'm sure it was a great show. What was the set list, DA?

I'm working on my review of the new album for medleyville and will post it hopefully later this week. ... I've got a written test for school to get out of the way first, though.
