Music Around Town

Marco Benevento/And the Kids

When: Sun., Oct. 25, 8:30 p.m. 2015

With last year’s Swift, keys man and circuit-bent guru Marco Benevento began singing for really the first time in his recorded career. The result was pretty great, and the move brought a new energy to his live shows. "In general, I like to keep things loose on stage," he told Scene last time we spoke. "Our band has never rehearsed." Benevento last played the Tavern about a year ago. The brooding "Witches of Ulster" played well as an incredible late-second set groove, and then the band launched into a version of The Knife's "Heartbeats" that could shake mountains before closing out the show with "At the Show" and a fine David Bowie cover in the encore slot. Tonight should be just as fun. Bring your dancing shoes. (Sandy)
