This past weekend I was blown away by live performances by PHOX and Typhoon at Last Exit Live in Phoenix. But what shook my bones and pulled my veins apart was this personal performance of Barside by Monica Martin of PHOX. After the concert in the parking lot with 7 of my friends she sat upon her guitar case, ukelele in hand, and gave us a most honest, heart-wrenching performance. Her reaction to the plane above, and sweet words between verses just showcases the natural beauty exuding from PHOX’s Monica. If you purchase one album this year, it better be PHOX’s album coming out early summer (according to Martin). It’ll be just as special as this.
