Kopecky Family Band Club Cafe Thursday, May 9, 2013 Southside

“Sometimes song is thicker than blood. First drawn together amid a college dorm ‘pass the guitar’ session in 2007, Kopecky Family Band co-founders Kelsey Kopecky and Gabe Simon quickly realized that they shared something beyond their alma mater. “Gabe started playing and I was totally blown away,” Kopecky remembers, “by his melodies, his talent. Something in the way he played felt so familiar to me and moving. I asked him if he wanted to get together and play some, sing some. And a few days later we did that. And it was crazy, it came together immediately– it just fit.”

Check out the band’s official Website, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and iTunes. The band arrives in Pittsburgh this upcoming Thursday touring behind their latest album, “Kids Raising Kids” at Club Cafe supporting He’s My Brother She’s My Sister. My thanks to Steven Holmes (Guitar) for taking a few minutes to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, Steven. Man, I can’t tell you how many musician’s cite Weezer as a disappointment. I couldn’t name one person who loves their later catalog.
