New Felice Brothers video :: “Frankie’s Gun” (plus tour dates)

I saw New York’s Felice Brothers perform this weekend at Outside Lands, and what an explosion! I never fancied myself as a massive accordion fan, but yeehaw. It’s all good. Also, any song that has the lyric “Spit make a fender shine, Frankie’s a friend-a-mine / Got me off a bender after long-legged Brenda died” (and isn’t a Dylan song) gets props in my book. See my original write-up about them here, and a slew of headlining tour dates were announced today:

  • Good free show Friday, all local acts, Westword is saying it has been moved to the Skate Park … the Kinetix are supposed to play at 7 p.m., if you haven’t caught them, you need to.

  • Love that these guys are getting some pub. Just an amazing act. Looking forward to their Reclaim Festival show in Rutland, OH. It’s a great outdoor location.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
