February is a good month for a birthday. At least here in Minnesota, where it is cold and snowy, it is nice to have a reason to celebrate in the middle of February. I am grateful to my lovely friends for celebrating with me with music at the Whole on the U of M campus on Friday night. We just couldn’t resist seeing Now, Now play a rare show at a small venue here in Minneapolis, even if it meant being the oldest people there. I am not lying when I say that I overheard a couple of students saying “she was at least 30” when talking about weird it was to see a University librarian at a show. At first, I tried to pretend I was not a 30-something librarian, but then I figured that at least I’m a 30-something librarian with good taste in music. :)
Speaking of my taste in music, Prissy Clerks opened for Now, Now, and they are a recent favorite of mine. When I first played one of their songs for my husband, he put it best: “I think this is what it would sound like if you and I ever started a band.” He has a point. It’s cute and kinda girly, but it’s noisy too. We like it.
Here is Prissy Clerks performing “No Sir” for Radio K in January 2013:
