Friday Night Video – The Felice Brothers Play in a Cab

The Felice Brothers
For some reason I’ve been in a big Felice Brothers mood recently. Something about their country-flavored rock seems to fit the colder weather for me. Consequently I’ve listened to their latest album Yonder is the Clock about 10 times this week. When I started searching for their stuff on YouTube I stumbled across this little gem. It’s from a series called Black Cab Sessions. They get bands into the back of a London cab and have them play a song. I remember watching a few of these a while back, and in general they’re very good. But this one with The Felice Brothers is great. They play “Ruby May”, a true story of a cabaret singer who gets murdered and buried in Times Square. And the cramped quarters make for an intimate performance.
