One of the most exciting things about music is that it can surprise you. My roommate was raving about a singer/songwriter and told me I MUST attend her show. I figured it would be a good excuse to drink some bourbon and get out of the house, but my expectations remained low. As I sat in a nearly empty bar with several people on the other side of the room with every intention of talking over the music, the wonderful Molly Sullivan began to put on one of the best shows I've seen all year. This is exactly why we all need to be open to checking out those bands we're not comfortable with...for transcendent moments like this. A friend, Greg Ward actually got a few seconds of video where I'm lost in my own surprise at the special talent of Sullivan.
