Saturday night, I headed out into the 'burg to see a friend play her first show drumming. They were the first band in the line up, and after their set and a snack run, I ended up kinda milling about inside, preparing to deftly make my exit. Honestly, I'm usually not one for live shows, unless it's a band I know and love. I'm there to say hey, show my face, chug a watery beer and bolt.

It's rare that a band I don't know anything about actually gets me going, which is why I'm still not quite over what happened when She Keeps Bees took the stage. And I mean TOOK. This girl owned that stage like she'd built it with her two bare hands--and that voice. By the end of their set the place was going nuts, and even relentless skeptics like myself we're bopping along. I kind of felt the way I did when I first heard the White Stripes, you know, back before Jack married a supermodel and became a Bond Girl or whatever...

Anyways, I feel like She Keeps Bees is definitely a band you need to see live in order to fully appreciate their awesome powers. Their recorded stuff is great, no question, but seeing Jessica Larrabee bring it in full force is not something to be missed. Here's a tiny taste:

Oh nice! I can totally hear the old White Stripes-ish sound you're talking about, it's very cool to hear an awesome girl version. I like it!

Ringo, here here. She blew me away, as a singer and a large personality. Brassy is the word I'd use to describe her, and my knees were weak. I was basically ready to propose marriage after the show was over.

OK I don't it's just me, but some of these pictures are a little bit creepy, don't you think? specially the one with the child in the floor.

the first picture looks pretty weird but I have to admit that it is quite artistic and the gaze that she has.
