La da da da: The Features, tonight!

[The Features: “Thursday” from Lake Fever Sessions]

Thursday (Lake Fever Sessions version) – The Features



THIS is precisely why I am looking forward to seeing The Features tonight at the Bluebird. Their set at Monolith was one of the absolute best of the entire weekend – just electrifying. They’re in town to open for The Whigs.

Also, check their new Gigbot Downlow’d interview, conducted by my friend Robert B. Rutherford from Everything Absent or Distorted.

  • The two young ladies side-by-side in the front row (white tank-top and brown hoodie) are my cousins and they both RAVE about this band. They play Nashville a lot and Janet (brown) writes about them constantly on her blog at http://outtheother.typepad.com

    Amazing video. Have fun.

  • For heartfelt rock and roll that gets you in the sweet spot every time, it doesn’t get any better than The Features. Case in point, they’ve been playing this song for a good part of their 15 years, and you’d think by this performance it’s their first time. I love, love, love this band. Great vid!

"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.
