I love, love, love a good concert. Unfortunately, my concert attendance is sporadic at best. But this weekend I got to see three of my new favorite artists in one of my favorite venues: First Avenue in downtown Minneapolis. My favorite (hmmm... I think that word might be losing it's power in this post) concert of all time (Our Lady Peace with Blacklab) was there, and even the theft of my car the night before the concert couldn't dampen the sheer awesomeness of it. (BTW, the cops did find my car abandoned on the side of the road in some shady Saint Paul neighborhood. The windows were smashed, the steering column was shredded, and my sweet, little vehicle was thoroughly violated by a bunch of thugs who used it for a drug run.)
Anyhoo, the concert this weekend was fabulous (and no cars got stolen). A great time was had by all. Check out this amazing trio of talented artists. You won't be disappointed!
Bright, fun pop music reminiscient of Bjorn. But listen carefully, her candy-coated lyrics contain subtle doses of irony. I love sarcasm served up sweet.
Folksy-rock that reminds me of Jack Johnson with a little more kick. It took me a while to get into his sound, and I'm still a bit on the fence... It's good. Not great.
Soulful, acoustic, lyrical and poetic. She's my favorite of the bunch because of her clear, powerful voice that breaks at just the right times. Her breathing is part of the music. Know what I mean?
