Larryville While this band was sure competent enough, there is talk that they will blow up soon ala Vampire Weekend. I doubt that will happen but as nice as they are they sure deserve it.

Larryville It’s very interesting how I stumble onto bands. It could be the name alone of the band that piques my interest (Margot & The Nuclear So & So’s), or possibly a short blurb in a review that gets me excited (The Harlan Twins!!), or in the case with this particular band, the drummer. I knew I recognized Kurt from somewhere but had to dig deep to realize I caught him in the summer fronting his own band at N.A.M.U. Not that I HAD to see them based on that (a solid review on Pitchfork helped) but it sorta pushed me over the precipice of doubt to go. Were they worth the hype? Hells, yeah! More tomorrow.

Garfield Artworks Larryville Cool show at the GA (which it seems like forever since I’ve been there-March of last year: The Swimmers and Hallelujah The Hills). I’ll have more on this show in the coming days.
