Pretty & Nice make me feel young

It was worth the drive on an otherwise quiet Sunday night to see Boston’s Pretty & Nice at Denver’s Hi-Dive. After loving their album last year, these guys were the first band I saw at SXSW (in the sparkly pink Beauty Bar) and I was mightily impressed.

This weekend I realized that their angular music is so rad simply because it juts and leaps and shines with threads of punk, woven with catchy melodies….and makes me feel young.

Go see these guys if you get a chance.

"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.
