The Opposite of a Train at Memminger Auditorium, Feb. 2, 2010

Staff Pick

Led by string-plucking musical director Bill Carson, local act The Opposite of a Train performed one of the most exquisite concerts of the last year at the Memminger Auditorium (he called it the Groundhog Day Benefit Concert) — a fundraiser for the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. Carson, percussionist Ron Wiltrout, and multi-instrumentalist Nathan Koci (the main core of the group) welcomed an array of guest musicians to the stage that night, including a four-piece horn section, upright bassist Kevin Hamilton, and a rotation of singers. One of the more stunning highlights featured Joel Hamilton (of The Working Title and The InLaws) standing statuesque at the microphone, delicately singing Led Zeppelin’s “Going to California” with Wiltrout on marimba, Carson on tenor banjo, and Hamilton on bass. Robert Plant would have blushed.
