Sean Watkins headlined at the Triple Door last week during his first solo tour. Accompanied by Dominique Arciero (guitar, vocals) and Tyler Chester (bass, piano, Mellotron, vocals), they played a number of songs off Sean’s recent album, All I Do Is Lie. Sean was also in Seattle last May during Nickel Creek’s 25th anniversary tour. The venue is somewhat unique because it has 16 seats right up at the stage. At one point Sean took a few steps forward from the mic and commented that he felt like a sushi chef – and pretended to serve us dinner.
Nashville-based singer-songwriter and one of my favorites, Lauren Shera, opened. Lauren’s third album, Gold and Rust, was released last year.
