Mini concert review:
Ruby and Summer Spiro, two sisters from Carlsbad, California, make up the musical act Ruby Summer. They’re small town girls that have big dreams, and this will definitely not be the last time you hear about Ruby Summer. Singing songs they’ve written themselves that are a mixture of country and pop, the two girls have had a taste of success, and its still rising. On November 10th, 2009, they released their EP Conspiracy of Divine Events on Itunes featuring the hit song, I Can Do What I Want. Ruby Summer has also opened for popular acts such as Honor Society and Mitchel Musso. We were able to catch up with Ruby and Summer, and watch them perform a free show on Thursday, January 7th, 2010.
It was a rather chilly evening in San Diego, California but the vibes were warm at the Beachgrass Cafe. The feelings inside the Beachgrass Cafe were comfortable and cozy which comes as no surprise. Ruby and Summer played in front of a hometown crowd of friends and family, and fans that drove out to see the sisters were able to see them sing in a more intimate setting. Even though the cafe was rather small, Ruby Summer performed with high energy from 6 to 9pm. The sisters sang songs from their EP Conspiracy of Divine Events, other original songs they wrote, and covered hits from the pop sensation, Lady Gaga. The two sisters have true talent and real stage presence. Their voices are smooth and soothing, and their songs are not only catchy but they’re inspirational as well. When Ruby and Summer sing, they sing about their own life experiences and you can feel the emotion behind the songs. Even when covering songs by Lady Gaga (they could give Gaga a run for her money), the two put so much heart into their performances, and anyone can tell that this is what they were meant to do.
