Rogue Wave Take It To The Streets!

Kyle Pfister - One Night (2005)

This afternoon I saw a fantastic street performance... and apparently in this corporatized industry even street performers have record deals. Taking a field trip from their instore acoustic set at Strictly Discs in Madison WI, Rogue Wave strummed a couple songs in the concrete corner of a nearby parking garage chosen for its stellar acoustics. The band was charming and particularly poignant was the cover of Buddy Holly's Everyday. I'm still not sure about these blog "rules" or "ethics", but I took a really neat video of part of the song in the garage and will gladly share it if you're interested [email me]. These four guys have mastered the falsetto harmony and I got a special kick out of the bassist singing along with his walking bass lines (little did I know this would actually come in handy outside). Check them out if you can; they're currently touring the country with Nada Surf.

I'm kinda surprised they played their song from the Stubbs soundtrack. It's a great song but surprising, too.

My latest post (field research?) is written by michael poellmann - writing from my point of view. I come off as an elitist bitch .......but i've been claiming to be pretentious all this time anyway
