The Week Every Show was On Point

Much to my dismay, one of my favorite bands, Be Careful Little Hands decided to call it quits this week after only a few years together. This band will be sorely missed, but I am keeping my fingers crossed that these great musicians will soon be back in new incarnations to please the world.

BCLH, at North Star, in more hopeful times.

In the meantime, I think I have met a tremendous new favorite band. I dashed into The Undisputed Heavyweights show at Arlene's Grocery, 20 minutes late after some other plans fell through. I figured I'd get there just in time for one brief final song. BOY! Was I ever wrong. I was treated too three PHENOMENAL songs and one of THE BEST live performers I've ever seen in this city. Casey Shea is all at once a lovely singer, a total lunatic, a dynamic performer, and one of the most hilarious foolish white boys I've ever seen strut around a stage. So great.

The band is playing again on Sunday the 29th at Galapagos and while I lament that they do not have an album, I don't think there is anyway an album could capture the awesomeness anyway. Definitely check this band out, boys and girls. Honestly, if gillmoreboy tells you to check out a band, just do it. He is excessively tall and excessively European, but he knows good music.
