A Shameless Plug
Great Big Sea
Calvin Theatre, Northampton, MA
21 April 2006
Such a fun band. If you're at all into Celtic music - not trad, deedle-deedle-dee music, although they do have some of that - you need to check out Great Big Sea. They're extremely talented and very funny. They put on a hell of a show, too, full of energy and perform with a pure enjoyment and love for their music. They make sea chanties dead sexy and Newfoundland folk songs rock.
Go check them out. Rant and Roar is their US greatest hits compilation and a good place to start. Then find out where they're playing near you and go see them and dance your ass off.
Today, my legs are sore and my throat a bit raw, but man, I had a blast.
