Music Day 4: Earlimart

“I brought my PowerPoint presentation”, joked Earlimart’s Aaron Espinoza, as two screens displayed random images behind him. Billed as an Earlimart performance, the set was really just Espinoza with his guitar and some drum beats (“I usually have a band. I forgot to pack ‘em on the way out of town”, he explained). In the comfortable confines of the church, it was a well put together, well thought-out show, although it didn’t really connect with me, personally. One undeniable highlight, however, was his rendition of the rarely-played “Heaven Adores You”, which Espinoza wrote about the late Elliott Smith.  Given the setting, Espinoza said, it seemed appropriate.
