Video: American Aquarium moves its quiet Duke Gardens show indoors

Posted by on Thu, Jul 11, 2013 at 11:36 AM

On Wednesday evening, Raleigh favorites American Aquarium were set to perform at the lush Sarah P. Duke Gardens for the Duke Performances "Music in the Gardens" series. Due to expected rain, though, the show was moved indoors to Motorco Music Hall.

American Aquarium had planned a very quiet acoustic set that usually wouldn't fly in the loud rock clubs where the group typically performs. In the move to Motorco, some of the delicate songs were lost on a crowd who seemed to switch to bar mode spontaneously. Still, with the assistance of cellist Kaitlin Grady, the group put on one of their strongest performances to date, digging deep into their back catalog to pull out songs they have never performed live. American Aquarium is no longer a one-trick-pony playing only rock shows; it can turn on a dime and deliver a different type of performance now.

Below are two deep cuts: "Water in the Well" from Small Town Hymns and "Road to Nowhere" from The Bible and the Bottle.
