Hey Delandites. Two more shows are tugging at the sleeve of reality, begging to happen in our town. One of them is a rock-solid, fast, funny, just plain good post-pop punk band from Chicago called the Please and Thank Yous: http://www.facebook.com/tpaty?sk=app_178091127385. (Yes, you can listen to them at that link). Super catchy, but not-derivative, fast songs. The post-pop-punk moniker is really appropriate. I can’t think of a band to compare them to, maybe early Weezer meets good Blink 182. They definitely have a 90s feel. They’re gonna need a show after Christmas. Listen and keep them in mind!
Now, more pressingly:
Two really talented folk-rock bands, WORLD HISTORY and REAL LIVE TIGERS (the latter of which Critter has played a show with in St. Augustine) from Seattle and Fayetteville, Arkansas, respectively, need a show on September 18th. Here’s what Neil, the guitarist of Real Live Tigers and super swell guy, has to say:
WORLD HISTORY: Folky genuine hungry songs; anarcho undertones & sometimes singalongs
Notes: Album features members of LAKE & Kickball. Played with bands such as Calvin Johnson, LAKE, David Dondero.
REAL LIVE TIGERS: Dark gospel electric folksongs about human connections, secrets, & mistakes
Notes: Played with bands such as Deer Tick, Mount Eerie, Peter and the Wolf. Recently featured on MTV Hive at http://read.mtvhive.com/2011/04/25/living-room-to-stage-the-diy-house-circuit.
