Hello! Hope you’re all having a lovely Monday so far. Today I give you number three on my list of Artists That I Love… The Weepies!
Genre: Pop acoustic rock
How we met: I really can’t remember how I first came across this duo. Maybe on emusic? Maybe through MySpace? It’s been several years since I first heard one of their songs, and I’ve been in love with them ever since. I finally saw them in concert for the first time a few weeks ago. They haven’t toured much in years. I saw them play at The Variety Playhouse in Little Five. It’s a pretty decent size venue, and the place was packed! Most artists that I love tend to do better in small, intimate venues, but The Weepies definitely held their own that night!
Sit, stand or dance: We sat, but you could most certainly dance to most of their stuff too!
Buy the album?: The have four, plus a live EP that you can get on iTunes. I recommend them all! Each album I bought initially for one or two songs, but over time I’ve come to love every single song! They have such a delicate and whimsical sound with such beautiful lyrics!
1) Nobody Knows Me
2) Somebody Loved
3)Painting By Chagall
(Not a lot of good YouTube videos for The Weepies. I recommend just going to their website, www.theweepies.com, and listening to their music there.)
