Went with Mrs. Poolbar to see a band called Seven Nations tonight at the Colonial Tavern. We'd never heard of them before and may not have gone except we both wanted to do something to try and get out of the funk over our friend's death.
Dude. No, I mean dude. These guys are awesome. And they were down two members from their full complement. Imagine Red Hot Chili Peppers going Celtic - no, that's not quite right, but maybe close. Anyway, they have to be seen to be believed.
They're based in Orlando, Florida so they're not a local act. In fact, their tour schedule shows them all over the US, with stops in Indiana, Illinois, California, Wyoming and even my former home town of Hartford in September.
Check their web site for the tour schedule...they're well worth going out of your way to see.
