The Waifs, June 28, 2010, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.'s Big Room, Chico, Calif.

The Waifs, an Australian folk-rock band now based in the U.S., came back through our territory on June 28, 2010 for a date at the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.'s classy 350-capacity Big Room in Chico, Calif. The longtime fronting trio of Donna Simpson (vocals, guitars), Vikki Simpson-Thorn (vocals, guitars, mandolin, harmonica), and Josh Cunningham (guitars, ukulele, vocals) were joined by David Ross MacDonald on a small drum kit. Donna and I had seen the Waifs for several years at the California WorldFest in Grass Valley, once at High Sierra and once at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. 'Twas lovely to have them appear locally again. We had a contingent of about 16 people filling two long tables at the show. Photos ŠAlan Sheckter / AlSheck@comcast.net.
