hi mr. salad. you have an awesome band.

So apparently this week I forgot that I had a blog. oops! so sorry about the lack of updates, but it's a slow week in music land at least as far as I'm concerned, and I've been pretty thankful for it.

Then again... at the end of the work day Tuesday I was trying to figure out what to do that night after dinner with the girls and Morning Theft, so popped onto On My Rockness (one of the few websites that I could not live without) and saw that Robbers on High Street and King of France were playing @ Mercury Lounge and decided that I immediately had to go. I recently became completely addicted to their album, "Tree City" which is one of those albums that took a while for me to love but now I'm not sure how I ever lived without it. Their live show upped the ante, and I love their vaguely Spoon soundalike key-driven rock and the crowd seemed to agree with me. Not a huge showing for a Tuesday night in their hometown, but this band plays out a lot so be sure to catch them if you have the chance.

Robbers On High Street - Spanish Teeth

King of France... wow. I don't even know. I sent Nicole a text message during their set that read: "I love King of France!" And she wrote back asking me what they sound like. I told her I would figure that out when I was more sober, but even now ... well I still will say that I love this band. I'm going to spend some quality time with their CD that I picked up at the show and get back to you. In the meantime...

King of France - The Beast

Oh, and their lead singer's last name is Salad. Awesome.
