Sum of Change made the long trek to Baltimore last Tuesday for some brew, billiards and of course, music.
We were attracted to Ottobar, a hip and happening venue in the Charles Village area, by Ezra Furman & the Harpoons, a young band on the road full-time for the first time.
The four lads met during their undergrad years at Tufts University and made the decision to tour after graduating in 2008. They're a dedicated bunch, putting on a spirited show for the somewhat sparsely attended gig. But despite the fact that Tuesday nights in a city far from Boston don't make for the liveliest of crowds, those in attendance were quick to get into the groove.
Transitioning from university students to rough and ready musicians can't be easy, but Ezra Furman & the Harpoons seem to enjoy it. These boys may just make it big some day.
