Field Report, a local band that helped spawn Bon Iver, has a new album out and is playing tonight at The Pabst Theater. The Mayor acclaimed it Field Report Day, and I am thus playing FR all day, as should you.
Fans of Bon Iver or Sufjan Stevens will like this. It’s not mellow, as such; but it does take a bit to grow on you. The first album was one that never grabbed me, but soon I realized that whenever one of the songs came up I would have to check who it was.
Still haven’t decided if I will go to the show tonight, I have a lot of work to do and a threatening cold. It’s across the river; I admit I would be much more likely to go if it was at Turner Hall across the street.
Of course, I would suggest you actually pay for the music. Others disagree.
