Oh, you babies are too nice. Our friend Cooper out in Murfreesboro went and sent us some mail reviewing Sunday night’s Looking Glass // Kindergarten Circus // Cheap Time show and we wanted to go ahead and share it with you. Maybe a regular contributor on our hands? Or atleast Nashville’s Dead’s ambassador to Murfreesboro? Yeah. And our bebe, Olivia Throckmorton, snapped some pics for us. Check them out after the letter.
Dear Nashville’s Dead,Whoa baby! Sunday night was a good night to be in Murfreesboro. When I heard The Looking Glass, Kindergarten Circus, and Cheap Time were playing at YEAH, I knew somebody somewhere had done a good thing.Anyways, I got there right before The Looking Glass started their set. Those kids play some sweet 60s psych-garage jams, and they look the part too. It wasn’t long before my feet were tappin’ and my hands were clappin’. I talked to the boys after their set and they said they’re working on a cassette right now that should be out soon. Can’t wait for that!After them, The Kindergarten Circus set up shop and, as always, they kicked out the gems. Dillon and the bad boys harnessed their teenage angst [or hormones?] and churned through song after song, mostly sampling from their debut LP. I went upstairs for a little while to play pool because I’m still a little sour about Dillon sticking his finger in my mashed potatoes the other day, but you should definitely check them out tomorrow night if you’re not going to see The Boss.Glam-bam-thank you ma’am-ers, Cheap Time, totally exceeded my expectations. And those were some HIGH expectations. This was the last show of a month-and-a-half long tour, so they were super tight. Novak and Steven blazed through their set, playing pretty much the entirety of their first LP and a handful of new songs [“Down the Tube” is THE JAM] I talked to Jeffrey after the show, and apparently that month-and-a-half tour included a pit stop to record the next LP! Stoked? Duh.Sincerely,CooperP.S. If you haven’t checked out the YEAH facility, you totally should. Cool things are happening there.
Thanks again, Cooper and Olivia. You two kimosabes rule.
