Jim Threlkeld & Co. photos

Last night was fun. A solo Floating Coat and some of his friends performed here, and we must say, it was by far the most instrumentally diverse in-store performance in Decatur CD's storied three-year history. Not only did a piccolo (or something close to it), a ukulele (during a Talking Heads cover, no less) and another nifty little thing with a name that is completely eluding our minds right now (someone help) all make appearances, but they implemented a THEREMIN! See below for a photo of that beast in action. Folks, it was just awesome. Beer was drank, tunes were played and all went home happy.

Isn't a theremin one of those "spooky music" machines that makes the "wooo-ooo" sounds in old vampire movies? I recently saw a Flaming Lips performance in which they employed one those bad boys.

That funny little instrument is a Melodica -- kind of a mix between a harmonica and an accordian.

Indeed, Samantha, that's the theremin. And it rules really hard.

Thanks, anonymous! We were having a brain fart...
