I had the pleasure of seeing one of my top 2 favorite bands on Thursday (I'll never deny my love for all things Loquat!) and it was such a treat! I first got into Pearl and the Beard in early 2010 I believe and they were my summer anthem for the entire time I lived in NYC and beyond. I simply can't get enough. I've gotten in the habit of picking up Nashville's free weekly circulation of Nashville Scene and I spotted that they would be playing 3rd and Lindsley in just 3 days. Boy oh boy you cannot fathom my insane excitement and the venue is simply downtown from our place so we were stoked. Mike is the only person I know who loves them like I do so we talked our friends Brian and Christina into tagging along. We walked in on the tail end of a country show (think Trace Adkins-style... leather clad fly girls). Uh yeah. After an incredibly long soundcheck with the local band PATB was up! They absolutely did.not.disappoint! Clapping, kazoos, and a whole variety of tunes later, we snagged the pink vinyl (their newest album, Killing The Darlings) and rushed home to relive it by playing it in it's entirety. BTW, I did indeed say pink vinyl (!!!).
Thursday we leave for Chicago and I know we'll be playing both this album and their prior God Bless Your Weary Soul, Amanda Richardson over and over and over. Hoping that Chicago will also bring a PATB addition but we'll have to see how our plans pan out! Until then, enjoy some ear and eye candy with these videos and the playlist below (it's their newest album!). Your ears will thank me! xo Part of me wants to move back to NYC just to be in the general vicinity of these fine folks!
What do you think? Your kinda music? What was your favorite song? xo
PS; I apologize for the copious amount of typos/grammatical errors! Apparently waiting until 1:30am to write a day's post isn't exactly the best idea! I think I fixed them all.. if not, you get the idea. (Thanks April!)
