So I got to see them after all. They came through Little Rock last week, and I’ve been listening to Killing the Darlings nonstop since. Here’s my show recap at the Times.
Also went to the downtown St. Paddy’s block party yesterday, which was no Sweet Potato Queens-infused Hal and Mal’s shindig, to be sure. Everyone was drinking and no one seemed to be having fun. It was pretty sad, so I didn’t stay long. But these kids were amazing — a mosh pit of two!
It’s spring, and good things happen in spring. In fact, this amazing music festival is happening in Hot Springs next week — and I have to say, I’m partial to Wednesday and Thursday’s line up. See y’all there?
