Music: The Galt Line
I love live music.
I love musicians that seem to be enjoying themselves...that take what they're doing seriously, but know that the reason they were doing this in the first place was because it was fun.
And I love stuff off the beaten path creatively.
And, after catching a recent live show, I love The Galt Line.
Oh, I could burn up blogospace galore trying to describe what they were like...comparing them to this band and that band...Squirrel Nut Zippers meets, I don't know, Asylum Street Spankers...is that really all that big a stretch? Probably not. Who knows? What I do know is that they are infectious in the best way possible. By song two everyone was paying attention.
Electric uke, bottlecap leg shakers, bass, smoking guitar, a drum, and a lead vocal that makes you want to drink, smile, and try to remember when the last time you had as much fun as the band was having.
Blah blah blah. Like there's anything I could write that would be half as good as listening to them sing. Watch this bit of phone cam wonder:
How much fun would that be?
What's even better, they're all over the place, if you check out the show line-up here:
you'll see that they're playing all over the country...do yourself a favor...check the list and if they're near you...go.
