Talain Rayne and his drummer Isaac Tucker brought their alternative/electronica style to SPA’s noontime show last Friday as part of the weekly concert series. Talain and Isaac, who are only two parts of the five-person band, delivered a crowd-pleasing performance and were definitely a great band to feature for the series.

Charlotte Sometimes and her pianist, Patrick Firth, took the stage, or the “carpet” as Charlotte called it, at 12:20 this past Friday at the first-floor lounge in the HUB-Robeson Center. Her performance was part of Student Programming Association’s (SPA) Noontime Concert Series, a weekly event that’s free for the public. The show had a coffeehouse feel, which created a relaxed atmosphere and more intimate connection between Charlotte and the audience.
Most of Charlotte’s recordings feature a full band (drums, other percussion, electric guitars, etc.) to create her signature indie pop/alternative rock sound. However, today she only had a piano and acoustic guitar backing up her vocals. This simplified version of her music gave the show a MTV Unplugged vibe. I’m a huge acoustic fan, so I appreciated this change of pace. Charlotte also implemented some scatting techniques in her songs, which made her performance pretty interesting.

Last night’s Dispatch concert was definitely one to remember. The show was one of few the band has performed since its 2002 hiatus. Nonetheless, this American indie/roots band brought its unique reggae sound mixed with some rock, ska and even rap to the Bryce Jordan Center (BJC) without any hesitations. I think it’s safe to say that Dispatch is back and better than ever.
