Live at Ipanema: Homemade Knives

Last month Ipanema Cafe hosted a wonderful performance by Homemade Knives. Headed up by Wil Loyal, Homemade Knives has very recently come off a three-year sabbatical. Well, folks, they are back in action and just plain wonderful. Have a listen (and look) at their performance (there are even a few Springsteen covers in there for you).

In case you missed it

    These guys blew me away at Gallery 5 a few years ago.

    The best part is when they turn off the microphone and dude just hollers out.
