Review: Archeology- Memorial
Unless I secure a designated driver, I'm not going to see Archeology when they perform seven miles from my home tonight. I'm not drinking. Rather, I'm so sleep-deprived that I'm actually hallucinating. I don't trust myself to make the trip in the dark. Memorial, Archeology's new album, contains the same sort of lush folk-based pop that has made Mumford & Sons and Blind Pilot fledgling stars. I hope to have sweet dreams about the Portland band's music tonight.
I'd almost forgotten just how much I love The New Pornographers. Here's my review of last night's concert in Lawrence.
I reviewed Alaturka's performance Sunday at Jardine's.
Ultimate Fakebook is offering their new album as a free download. (Tip via The Pitch.)
Bluesman Phillip Walker died July 22.
"The queen of the bolero," Olga Guillot, died earlier this month.
Kansas City Click: As noted above, Archeology appears Tuesday at The Record Bar.
Remember Sister Hazel? The band will be on the Power & Light stage Wednesday.
Abstract Rude plays The Record Bar on Thursday.
