I’m Hopeful

19 Dec

2008 may be marked to go down in history for many reasons, but let’s not forget those important in the local music world. One such event to remember is the release of “Now Playing at the One-Seat Theatre” by pop favorites The Hopefuls. Their last album, “The Fuses Refuse to Burn” spun relentlessly in my car and home CD players for months on end. You could see me anytime on the street humming to “Pretty Bigmouth” or “Holiday.” I couldn’t help it. It was my crack.

This new album merges old with new, as long-time audience favorites like “On the Edge” and “Idaho” finally become imprinted in a physical format. We can take it home with us instead of just trying to hum the tunes in our heads. New songs like “Virgin Wood” and “Stacey” (yeah, they must’ve misspelled it… what’s with the ‘e’ guys?) will also give you an earworm you might not be able to get rid of. I can tell you though that the band is already working on album number three, so the wait can’t be nearly as painful and long as the last.
You’ll get your chance to see The Hopefuls this Saturday (hey, that’s tomorrow!) at First Avenue for the band’s CD release show. Doors are at 6pm and One for the Team and Chris Koza open. You can pick up tickets at The Electric Fetus or the door. See you there! Oh, and for those who wonder, I have it on good authority that Rupert will be hanging out too.
