Dave and I went to a house show last night for a band called “Pearl and the Beard” and it was SO SO good.
We bought one album there, and I already bought the other album on iTunes. I wanted to also get their EP, a t-shirt, and a tote bag. Dave is kind of the voice of reason in our relationship. I don’t know if you knew that or not.
This was shockingly the first time I had been to a house show. While I kind of get overwhelmed in large groups of people in smallish areas (like the time I went to the Alamo and almost had a panic attack) I really had a great time. We got to sit close to the band, talk to them afterward, and meet some new people. I’m going to have to make a habit of attending house shows. Maybe I’ll try to get this social anxiety thing under control first…
If you like excellent music that’s quirky and cool, you’ve got to check these guys out.
