Random Music Thoughts – February 27, 2012

Posted: February 27, 2012 in Random Music Thoughts

This past weekend was all about the Promise Ring. They played Milwaukee on Friday and Chicago on Saturday. Rolling Stone has a well-written review of their Milwaukee show. AV Club also has a review of the Milwaukee show.

I waited until Saturday to see the Promise Ring at Metro and they were great. I’d only seen them once and that was way back in 1998. I can’t believe it had been so long but I’m glad I was able to see them again. I ended up getting a decent spot despite the crowd. They played a good mix of their material and seemed really excited to be playing live again. It was a really enjoyable show.

In other news, Andrew Bird’s new album, Break It Yourself, is streaming over at NPR.
