Tempting the Fire Marshall: Magnolia with AA

Currently, there is not a better show than American Aquarium at the Magnolia Motor Lounge in Ft. Worth. Will they outgrow the venue? No doubt. Last Saturday night they set the attendance record for the place – packing almost 500 people into a 300 person capacity room. Last year when they played the Magnolia, it seemed just as crowded as Saturday night. But the Magnolia has been fans of theirs for a long time – last show, B.J. paid homage to the owners, telling the crowd that the first time they played there, they played to a crowd of about 10 people, but the Magnolia believed in them and kept having them back.

The Magnolia got the return on their investment Saturday. Jonny Burke opened the show to the capacity crowd and most gathered around the stage to hear him sing. He pulled songs from his CD Cup Runneth Over and his self-titled EP. Jonny seems to be everywhere all of the sudden, opening up for Cody Canada, Jason Boland, Turnpike, and others. It will not be too long until he’s the one headlining packed houses.

Next up the USAq guys took the stage. About two songs in, B.J. told the crowd that it was going to be a long night if they keep singing every word back to the band, and a long night it was. There is nothing better than when a crowd, a venue, and a band all fit together perfectly for one night of great music. They played songs from all over their catalog, mixed in a John Prine cover, and closed with crowd favorites ”Ain’t going to the Bar Tonight”and “Burn, Flicker, and Die”. Songs from their new album, Wolves, were woven into their old stuff and fit perfectly. They did not play an encore and the crowd didn’t half-heartedly cheer for one like at most shows. Both the band and the crowd knew there was nothing more to be said to each other until the next time.

    Well, to be fair, they do have an outside seating area and a parking lot for overflow. I would imagine the 300 capacity is inside only. Good venue and they have decent food also.
