Crowded into the tiny storefront, it was very hot, and visibility was limited, with Dobrow and supporting band members taking places on the floor. The unplugged performance sounded great in the small room, the notes bouncing off walls covered in photographs of people with their record collections. But what struck me most was how completely humble Jesse was, personally walking around a tray of cookies before the show. "Tant Pis" was introduced, "This song is in French, so if you speak French, I'm sorry," furthering Harris' humility.
Jesse plays an amplified set tonight at Rockwood Music Hall.
