Paul Mauer with Thene Singleton and David Johnson at Capitol Cider

This is going to be a quick one. Rain City Collective's friend Paul Mauer was in Seattle tonight to play at Capitol Cider. There was no way we were going to miss it, especially since it's within walking distance for Scott.

We love Capitol Cider. They are a fixture in the Capitol Hill community, and their downstairs Ballast Bar is committed to offering good live music in a cool, safe environment with awesome food and drinks.

We won't lie, though. It can be a challenging venue for musicians. It's a regular night for the bar, which means you can have tables full of people who are not 100% there for the music. That's not a bad thing. We like the idea that music can add to any occasion. But it can take a few songs for the musician(s) and the crowd to get in sync. That was the case tonight. It took a few songs for everyone to recognize that there was some really good live music right there at the table with them. But they perked up fast.

Paul Mauer was joined by Thene Singleton and David Johnson. And we never miss a chance to mention that we spotted Southwest Sweetheart Sandi Fernandez in the crowd.
