I don’t wanna go out tonight … if you’re staying at home

The superb Belfast-meets-alt-country blend of Minnesota’s Romantica comes to Denver tonight at the Soiled Dove. After seeing them at SXSW, I highly recommend this impassioned show.

Here is an extra-gorgeous rendition of “The Dark,” by request, a few nights ago in Salt Lake City.

Remember when they sang that song with Ryan Adams? Remember how it’s one of my favorites?

  • I LOVE Romantica too! Very cool that Carrie Rodriguez & Alejandro Escovedo are clued in and letting them be part of their shows. I caught them in San Pedro & Santa Monica on this most recent tour and just get more impressed each time I see ‘em.

"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..."

"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."

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.
