Belle and Sebastian in the U.S. in the fall – yeah, yeah, yeah

June 8, 2010

When my kids were young and beginning to listen to contemporary rock ‘n roll, I did my best to influence their taste – suggesting Dylan, Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix, Van Morrison, The Doors, Jeff Beck, et al, from the ’60s and ’70s. In time some of my suggestions took. But to my surprise, as many of their suggestions took root with me.

I’ve listened to, and liked, Sublime (and the re-awareness of  the word “sublime” – through the band’s name – influenced this blog’s title), Green Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Reel Big Fish, Catch 22, Cake, and Belle and Sebastian.  Belle and Sebastian is my favorite band and sound brought to me courtesy of my children.

My daughter and I did a “girls road trip” four years ago to see them at their one U.S. stop, which was nine hours away.  So, how happy am I that this fall I can drive about an hour to see them? Answer – very happy, super psyched in fact.

This tune is characteristically B&S – upbeat beat, melancholy lyrics. And it’s an excellent dance song…

Try to catch a show.
