DC’s Songbyrd is the right venue for certain artists at certain points in their careers. Alex Cameron was that artist at that point on Monday night. Ascendant; playing to a packed room of people who knew the words to the hits and the anti-hits, songs from the new album and the old; and who were in thrall to his dance moves, his character-based glare, and his and Roy’s “pretty mean posse”.
As we waited in anticipation, instruments sat quietly alone on the backlit 9:30 Club stage. Just the basics for folk artists. A drum set, a cello, three guitars and a banjo.
