14 Dec

There is something perverse about this: I feel better about living in a place that turns viciously cold because artists like Andrew Bird decide to put on special, intimate concerts here, despite the fact that it was me and not he who stood outside in 10 degree weather waiting for the cathedral doors to open.

While down the street, the Dirty Projectors were either blowing you away with their complexity or turning you off with the same, at the Triple Rock Social Club, young London-based orch-poppers Fanfarlo were making the room all warm and cozy with their promising arrangements and homespun rock. The sextet just kicked off their first headlining […]
