Video: Phil Cook at Cat's Cradle for his latest EP, This Side Up

Posted by on Tue, Aug 13, 2013 at 3:37 PM

Sunday evening at the Cat's Cradle brought the Trekky Records-sponsored EP release for Phil Cook's latest effort, This Side Up.

Cook is fresh off his Boomer's Story tribute performance with a host of Triangle musicians as well as his work on the upcoming Blind Boys of Alabama record.

The show, which was moved indoors from the Steel String Brewery to the Cradle, was a gathering of Cook's friends. Ryan Gustafson opened, playing solo acoustic and debuting a number of new songs. The Loamlands followed, with a new bass and rhythm section that added more depth to their previous duo lineup.

Cook took the stage starting off in his familiar solo format. He told a few stories and played a few songs before being joined by the rest of his band. In addition to playing a few numbers from This Side Up, they touched on a few numbers from Boomer's Story as well as Cook's previous release, Hungry Mother Blues. Below are a few clips from the performance.

"D.L.'s Holler," named after former INDY Week staff photographer D.L. Anderson:

"Take Your Burden to the Lord and Leave It There," a traditional gospel number dedicated to Cook's grandfather:
