Episode 17 of the Penny Jam features Narwhal vs. Narwhal performing “Don’t Take” at Cherry Sprout Produce Market. You would never know watching this that we’d filmed the exact same band in the same location on a Sunday 7 days before. In a twist of random weirdness, our sound engineer, James, had his laptop stolen from his truck the following Monday night.
So with some heartache and a little explaining we set out to refilm Narwhal vs. Narwhal. Luckily we were able to get back into the Cherry Sprout Produce Market through saxophone player Amanda Mason Wiles, who is also in a cool band called Pink Widower (whose CD has been in heavy rotation in the Mustang.)
I first saw Narwhal with Joe about a year ago at the Someday Lounge performing with Alan Singley and the Pants Machine. I thought they were pretty cool but I didn’t reconnect with them until recently for the Penny Jam, though the timing was good, with the release of their album “Wipe the Sweat from Your Words.” It’s worth checking out.
