    I just played this to my wife and her girlfriend (no Harley) who are doing girly hair stuff, and the consensus is, it's nice, and an evening of that would be cool, if seated with food and drink. Not really nitrated in standing room only, or trying to pogo to it.
    Maybe I'm a soft cock, but I thought it was OK. Not hair-raising, but not bad.

    Yeah, I've heard them before and I liked them.....not my favorite, but certainly doable for a night to accommodate my wife/SO......

    Man up. I went with my wife to see Celine Dion.

    She said it was payback for making her come to see Rush.

    They seem like an enthusiastic bunch of fellows. Came for the music, stayed for the variety of hats.

    Does your Wife have girlfriends?..... Sounds like a girls' night out to me. Last thing Mrs. K dragged me to was Nick Cave...(and what a show!)

    In the OP's defense, indie folk is the worst. As is indie pop. Pretty much, put "indie" in front of any genre, and it's like a pre-apology for lameness.

    Never heard of them but they sound pretty good to me. At least she's not dragging you to Joe Boring-massa

    I went to a concert with a former girlfriend a couple years ago for a band called the Decemberests. Paid for the tickets too.

    I never heard of them, she wanted to go. The place was packed, she and the crowd loved it, I yawned through the whole thing.

    Me: "Did you enjoy it honey??"
    Her: "I loved it!"
    Me: "I'm glad, sweetheart."

    Gotta keep the ladies happy, fellas.

    Kinda OT, but years ago I reluctantly bought my wife and I Lyle Lovett tickets (not a hater, just not my cuppa), and was very pleased to find most of the hall filled with pretty women. I took my drink and settled in among this lovely crowd to have his 'Large Band' knock me out, Mr. Jerry Douglas in particular. Midway thru he brought out the bassist's sister, Alison Krauss, to sing. So yeah, I was glad it was my IDEA TO GO.

    Saw Lyle Lovett open for Sting many many years ago. He was awesome. I'd see him anytime.

    Saw that same show at Darien Lake. Lyle Lovett blew Sting away, IMO.

    Not for me, but then I'm a Sting fan :) (although the album he was touring for, Mercury Falling, is my least favorite of the ones I own by him and I stopped following him after that).
    It was cool when Lyle came out to do I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying with him.
