Live and acoustic with McHaLo

Tonight marked the second night of tracking for acoustic trio McHaLo, which takes their multi-cased name from its three members: Grant McClintock, Brian Haan, and Regan Long. While the last session saw them laying down a hip, smooth cover of Outkast's "Hey Ya," tonight they dove into one of their originals, a jangly, mandolin-flecked tune in 3/4 time called "Saint". (To this engineer's ears, it recalled a bit of The Band, The Rolling Stones, and/or Counting Crows.)

Below are a few shots from the session, taken by Mr. McClintock.

Regan and Brian listen to a playback.
