Welcome to the part of my blog where I introduce my readers to artists/songs that I have recently discovered or been particularly drawn to. This week, my NMM pick is Family and Friends.
Family and Friends is a 7-piece indie-folk-rock band whose motto is "Good people. Good music." This past week Parker and I had the opportunity to see them in concert (for free!). It was one of the most energetic and personable concerts I've seen. They completely live up to their name; by the end of the night I felt like part of the family. The guitarist recognized my boyfriend from his tweet before the show (apparently the drummer's hair used to be identical to Parker's), so he came and introduced himself and the band. We were even set to grab coffee before the show, but sadly the nearby coffee shops had all closed.
It was such a great experience to meet such good people who played downright good music. Give them a listen, and welcome to the family.
You can read more about the band and get tour dates on their own blog.
