Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers with Goodnight, Texas //
The Fillmore — San Francisco
Saturday, January 25 2014 //

Your first show at the Fillmore is a big deal for any musician or band, but when that show sells out weeks in advance, you know you are on the right track. Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers are squarely on that track and this train ain’t slowing down. Saturday night’s show was a special one for the local rising stars anchored by the charismatic and emotional songstress, Nicki Bluhm. “Jetplane” would open the evening in grand style as the eclectic crowd got their dancing feet moving, gearing up for one of the bands biggest shows to date. Old favorite, “Barbary Blues” eventually led into the first guesting spot by fellow locals Magik*Magik Orchestra (who they will be joining at the Fox this Friday) as they joined the Gramblers on the track, “Nothin'”. A cover of the Easy Leaves’ “Another Rolling Stone” was another highlight before wrapping it all up with a 3-song encore featuring the return of members of Magik*Magik. Nicki’s stage presence is electric, and we can only expect to see and hear more exciting things from this local group.
