So, since writing about the Dawes and Blitzen Trapper Tour Sampler EP, I got to thinking about what a great idea this so called tour sampler is, so I've decided to try my hand at it. Basically, I'm just going give you info about a tour and the low down on the bands playing is so you can keep overanalyzing Animal Collective albums and cursing crappy Pitchfork reviews.
And, since the boys of Lady Danville are living the dream and touring with Guster (A dream come true for Lady Danville; they cited Guster as a favorite band and great source of inspiration when I interviewed them back in January) and Jack's Mannequin, I thought this assembly of like-minded, heart-bearing songsters would be a great place to start. Here goes.
Guster is an infectious pop quartet that's been around for quite a while. With performances known for humor and a lighthearted but witty sound, they're definitely a great band for someone like Lady Danville to look up to.
Lady Danville is the delightful trio that's guaranteed to put a smile on your face. My fellow UCLA Bruins are some of the nicest guys you'll ever meet, and they've got the sweet tunes to match. Moreover, their performances include everything from ukeleles to harmonicas to love songs to barber shop trio harmonies. Plus, singer/guitarist Dan's bowtie is pretty freaking adorable (especially in person).
