Ooh Da Lally
Two Hand Fools
June comes fast and the basement air gets thicker. Smells more like rotten eggs and three brands of cat pee.
Before the show, I had sprouting seeds in the sun on our front steps of eggplant, pepper, tomato. One of my little trays was kicked over and not picked up by a band. What is the deal!? Didn’t they realize it was a future salad they had endangered?
Ooh Da Lally is from Louisville, KY and they play folk songs. With a new bass player and a new drummer, their sound needed some tightening. Sweet kids. When they come to town, a trip to Buckeye Donuts is mandatory.
R. STAR is my roommate and as I have mentioned earlier in this blog event, his song writing continues to progress as he plays. Keep stumming and howling in your room right above mine little buddy. I can hear everything.
TWO HAND FOOLS. These Cleveland stinkers have the same story. They only get better and tighter. They play a version of folk punk that is actually good. It is catchy, it is bouncy, it is served up from the heart. They will put you in a good mood. They have enduring punk energy that they have been using to write some good songs. I wanna listen to them on a road trip west. It is that type of thing.
PHARAMONES. I love pop music and they fuckin play it. It’s pop the radio cannot have. It’s ours. It is all ours and I’m not sharing- Well, okay, email me for the mp3s if you want,
