Hillsburn is playing our Blues & Jazz music festival tomorrow, and I’m pumped. Two weeks ago, one of my dear friends (and total music buff) was like; “Have you heard of Hillsburn?” and I was like; “Nope” but then she put on the CD and I had totally heard one of their songs before. So I’m totes hip.
I don’t know what it is about my particular corner of the world, but here in the East Coast incredible artists and creators are literally dripping out of our walls. Literally. It’s kind of creepy actually.
Anyway, I think they must be spiking the water or something. And as long as they’re already spiking the water with talent, they might as well throw some LSD in there too. (Is that still a cool drug? I don’t know what the kids are taking these days.) Would make for a super interesting Saturday. That way we can all chase the dragons in the kitchen.
Back to Hillsburn. These are some of my favs from their album “In the Battle Years”. Definitely worth taking a listen.
I also really love the last song from that album; “Billy”, but I can’t find a version that will play for me on YouTube so I don’t wanna link it. It’s on Spotify though, and I highly recommend taking a listen. Cause it’s super dark. Spoiler: It’s about murder. But it’s got a super catchy riff so it’s okay.
I don’t know if this will work for yas, but let’s give it a whirl:
I’ve heard they put on a pretty epic live show, but even if they have an off-night I’ll likely be mildly intoxicated and drunk me is super easy to impress, so I win either way. Yay me!
If you see me at the show, yes – that is a flask in my purse and no, you can’t have some.
BTWs, the Storytelling Gig went off without a hitch, and as soon as I get the press pictures I’m gonna tell you all about it. It was awesome.
Here’s a backstage picture I took from another Small Halls show that I MC’d in the meantime:
PS – I feel like I shouldn’t have to say this (cause duh) but drugs are bad. Don’t do them.
PPS – Unless they’re prescribed to you. Then take the drugs.
PPPS – This also feels like an appropriate time to point out that ‘sharing is caring’.
