A Night Out

Years ago, my cousin introduced me to the strange sounds of Murder by Death. They're a difficult band to describe: a cellist, a lead singer that channels Johnny Cash, and the occasional feramin solo make for a truly unique band....AND I FINALLY GOT TO SEE THEM PLAY A LIVE SHOW!


This was a triumph. For four years I've been desperately trying to see them play when they pass through Minnesota on tour. For four years I've been out of luck...but not last night. Last night I was serenaded to the sounds of one of my favorite bands. I was not disappointed.


The cellist played so hard she broke a string and nearly shredded her bow...


...the percussionist broke out the feramin AND some sweet sparks...


...and the singer was AMAZING, all while partaking in several complimentary shots of whiskey.

It really was an incredible show. I'd encourage everyone to check them out! I'm a big fan of the following songs:
