Aberdeen City- Stay Still
It seems like every town has at least one really solid band like Boston's Aberdeen City. My locals heroes are The Roman Numerals. A mix of Joy Division, the Cure and early U2, they're the types of bands that the Arctic Monkeys mocked so effectively on Whatever People Say I Am... Even so, The Freezing Atlantic has plenty of hooks, melodies and groove. I hope their forthcoming Steve Lillywhite-produced album is even better.
I received a flyer in the mail yesterday for this concert. "Who is this guy," I wondered. "And why does this theater think that because I bought Doc Watson and Jimmy Webb tickets from them that I'd want to see him." This YouTube video quickly answered those questions. And yes, I'd love to attend.
