Houck, we were told by a neighbor, was pissed about the sound system, but it was difficult to tell because this is the first time we've seen him. His brand of psych-drenched country-folk seemed cool enough, though, and his voice is outstanding. And the keyboard player in his touring band did things rarely heard of in relatively straight-laced country music—rolls and riffs straight out of the blues idiom, making a kind of ornate joinery with Houck's singing. But the songwriting falls a bit short. The best Phosphorescent song played, "Reasons To Quit," sounds like a tired reworking of the Louvin Brothers' "Satan Is Real," both in melody and lyrical tone. An encore version of the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody" was good, but not great.
