Dave Deporis @ Mo Pitkins
Dave Deporis – At the End of the Tunnel (mp3)
(I think this is the one that gave me goosbumps)
I saw Dave Deporis last Thursday, Febraury 16th at Mo Pitkins. In a word, he was unbelievable. Only two songs in I was so moved that my eyes watered and goosebumps ran down my arms. If you’ve been keeping up online, then you probably already know Deporis from Audiofile, then Sixeyes, then Brooklyn Vegan. Even so, last Thursday night felt like a secret show. It wasn’t really, but I got the same feeling that I was witnessing some rare spectacle, as if Deporis could easily play a venue drastically larger. It was intimate and his voice all-too-perfect; I was astounded.
Thing is, I’ve seen him before. Twice. It didn't completely click until now. Try you damn hardest to see him at Mo Pitkins. Something wonderful occurred in that room that night.
