Dark Dark Dark put on a mighty fine show!

Dark Dark Dark put on a mighty fine show!
It was a freezing cold night in Norwich as I made my way to Norwich Arts Centre to see Dark Dark Dark with support from Three Beards on Wednesday. I made sure I was suitably dressed with red beanie hat and gloves to keep out the cold!

First on stage were Three Beards who brought a taste of Eastern Europe to Norwich Arts Centre. Full of vodka, cossacks and Russian folk music. They definitely put on a lively performance.

Dark Dark Dark proved they had the quality and character to light up the auditorium with a  captivity performance of their chamber-folk. It was vintage music which took you on a dreamy tour of Old America. Nona Marie Invie is at ease on stage with her vocals which give Dark Dark Dark a sound that is a mix of Regina Spektor and Arcade Fire, evoking thoughts of  Régine Chassagne.

With an accordion, banjo, cello, castanets and piano they sound like they belong to a bygone age. You could say they are more 19th Century then 21st Century which I found very enchanting. It was a very enjoyable evening and well worth the trip in the cold to Norwich Arts Centre which is almost the perfect venue for Dark Dark Dark.
