Steve Mason @ Cargo

LIVE REVIEW: Steve Mason at Cargo
I don’t think I’ve ever seen Cargo as packed as it was last week for the triumphant return of ex-Beta Band dude Steve Mason. He certainly didn’t disappoint either, as the assembled throng were treated to some fabulous sounding renditions of tracks off his new solo album, as well as a couple of Beta Band and King Biscuit Time classics thrown in for good measure. He started out onstage alone, just Steve and his guitar for a couple of tracks, including one of those Beta Band favourites in the form of ‘Dr Baker’. Then the bandmates arrived to fill out the sound for the songs that followed. Everything off brilliant new album ‘Boys Outside’ sounded great, particularly ‘Am I Just A Man’ (the next single release, he informed us) and ‘All Come Down’ right at the end. The laser was pretty spectacular as well, and made the whole show into a something of a visual treat. It’s great to see Mr Mason back. Hopefully this is just the start of fantastic things to come in the future. IM
