SUPER BONHEUR (Burlington).
Imagine a beautiful summer day: roasting on the barbie, dirty fingernails, frayed cutoffs, double fisting maple creemees, damp basements, unmade beds, and spilled coffee. Add some weirdos dancing/body rolling to some jamz by our friends Shawn and Nick, and BAM there’s a sick summer day. With Shawn on vocals and a hacked + distorted ukulele, and Nick on his makeshift kit (w/ a briefcase kick drum!), it’s obvious why you came. This lo-flyyy duo will charm you with their brutally honest lyrics and super fun ‘tude. Their set will be at the Friends+Family stage on May 3rd at Waking Windows music/arts fest! Can’t miss Super Bonheur if you’re looking for a R e a l l y G o o d T i m e.
RIYL: lo-fi, tiny instruments, affogato creemees, Diddy Kong racing
Check back tomorrow for lessons on Socialism.
Oh, friends, today is a good day. For many reasons, the main and most important being that gone-but-not-forgotten Burlington heartthrobs TOY BOAT(toyboatoyboatboytote) have FiNALLY released their much-anticipated tape as a FREE DOWNLOAD online! After the three members parted ways following an unsurpassed Waking Windows 3 performance (wait maybe they went on tour after that? whatever, time), many of us felt doomed to never hear them again. Well, one year, 3 states, 2 labels, and some phenomenal post-production later, our Boys are BACK. You may not ever catch them live again, but with these tunes safely stashed away in our tape players and hard drives, you can bet they won’t soon be forgotten.
