Major Tom And The Atoms- The House That Love Built Single Launch
Bic Runga's show last night Mary and I walked to Cherry Bar on AC/DC Lane to catch Major Tom And The Atoms' single launch. We arrived just as the band were setting up so it was perfect timing. They started their set with "Wishing Well" and soon had the crowd in the pit dancing up a storm to their songs, including "Mockingbird," "Lizard King," "Hey Flo" and the single being launched that evening "The House That Love Built." For a few songs Tom was joined on stage by Jacqui Rath, which added some female vocals to the mix. It was a fun and entertaining set as expected, and they finished off the night with my favorite song of theirs "Rolling Stone." Now that Tom has officially left Little Red he is focusing all his energy into the new band. I'm looking forward to the release next month of their debut EP Shake It Til You Break It.
