My boyfriend Matt and I have been going to quite a bit of shows lately. I had discovered this band, HoneyHoney (myspace music if you want to have a listen - I suggest you do!), when we went to see another singer/songwriter that I like, Nicole Atkins. I guess it wasn't really a discovery since Nicole Atkins was opening for HoneyHoney. Usually Matt and I arrive at shows and stay only to just see the one band we meant to see. But I did want to stick around to see HoneyHoney, a decision based on listening to their live-streamed-myspace-music, and because we did that we became fans. I like how HoneyHoney is located near where I am so I can attend their shows. It's especially nice that they've been playing shows. I'm not a fanatic, yet, like I am of Ingrid Michaelson.
If you're in the area, HoneyHoney is playing in Venice this Friday, February 5th at The Stronghold. The Stronghold is a denim shop by day, interesting. According to their site, they were "the first denim brand manufactured in Los Angeles" "in 1895". Their store looks cute. So does their website - so give it a click.
Maybe if The Stronghold allows it, I'll bring my camera to take pictures. Or record with my Flip. Then I'll get to post videos on YouTube and relive the performance - especially the new-unpurchaseable songs which aren't on their album. I love watching parts of music shows on YouTube, I like to do it when I procrastinate.
