Discovered them when they opened for Hey Marseilles last year and love their stuff. Can’t wait for the full album!

I had this long rambling post about how sad I am about Dave’s passing, and then my computer froze. Sigh. Long story short, the music community lost a terrific person this past weekend who will be missed terribly. Cancer sucks. 

If you’re in Providence, RI today there’s a free concert at the Columbus Theatre to celebrate Dave’s life. It’s free and you should go. Details here
