Local Music Update

A few months ago, I posted some local bands that I enjoy listening to here. From what I have seen, all the bands are still going strong, but one of the bands has changed its name. They were known as Something About Chinamen, but they are now known as Apt.4B. You can find them on YouTube here.

They have some new songs out, and they continue to get better.

Two of My Favorite Artists – One Song

James Blake and Bon Iver performing on the same track. I love it!

Julia Nunes

At the end of last week, I got to finally see Julia Nunes in concert. I have listened to her music for the past 10 years, but she has never come to a place that I could make it to. She travels all over the country doing Living Room Shows. She also does bigger shows, but these are the most intimate type of musical show that I have ever seen. It is just the musician and the fans. When I say fans, I am talking about 50 people who go to someone’s house. I don’t think that the show could really get any better. From the picture below, you can see how close I was.

After the show, she did a meet and greet. I got a picture with her, and she signed a vinyl album that I purchased. It was great all around for me. The person on the left is Julia, and the person on the right is the┬ápercussionists, Julia’s girlfriend, and internet sensation, Danielle Owens-Reid.

I was a little skeptical about going to a show like this, but I will definitely be attending again. Julia was a little sick, but she was still a great singer. She sounds amazing acoustically. I love her albums, but I think that acoustic performances are where she shines. I am also a little bit of an acoustic performance nut.
