One of my favorite live experiences at SXSW this year was seeing the buoyant and catchy music of You Won’t. Not only is their debut album completely irresistible, but during their live show they won my heart by playing their drums with kitchen utensils (because it made me pretty sure they’d wash their dishes if they ever come through Colorado Springs and stay at my house), and generally making everyone want to dance, even though it was Saturday and all our feet were blistered. Listen:
CONTEST! WIN TICKETS: You Won’t is currently on tour with Alcoholic Faith Mission, and Fuel/Friends is co-presenting their Denver show tomorrow night at the Hi-Dive! I have two pairs of tickets to give away. Please email me if you want to check out the show and I’ll pick some folks tomorrow morning! It is going to be totally terrific, and a lot of fun — help kick this grey drizzle right out of town.
