Captain Squeegee - Crescent Ballroom - 1/29/14

Captain Squeegee Crescent Ballroom 1/29/14

If David Gilmour and Jerry Garcia linked up in Phoenix and decided to begin playing jazz music, it's a safe bet that said collaboration would sound something like Captain Squeegee. The local atomic jazz-fusion act, still riding high following the release of their sophomore album, To the Bardos, and its first music video, "Inevitable," played an "acoustic" show at Crescent Ballroom last night along with The Riveras, There Is Danger, and Wooden Indian.

And the word "acoustic" was applied to the concert in somewhat arbitrary fashion. The first two acts stuck to acoustic pretty well, but Captain Squeegee and Wooden Indian played sets that were more or less fully electric. "I thought that we cheated enough to make it sound sort of like the record, but not really," says Captain Squeegee frontman Danny Torgersen.
