Yeah, I had to read that headline a couple times myself before believing it myself, but yes, indeed, Band of Horses, the massive-sounding rock band now located in South Carolina, are coming to Bend on May 30.
The announcement came by way of a Twitter post from the Old Mill District yesterday. Isn't it fun receiving excitement in 140-character bursts?
This, for the most part, erases the allegedly snot-nosed attitude pervasive in my last posting about the respectable, but you know, kind of, well, disappointing (at least for non AARP cardholders) Steve Miller Band announcement. And this is just the first band on the Sasquatch! lineup that Monqui Presents (the company that books the LSA) has snagged by the ankle to play a Memorial Day Weekend show here in town.
Ticketing info and opener info (most likely an awesome act or two, maybe also from the Sasquatch lineup) will be announced soon. In the meantime, check out Band of Horses!
UPDATE: She & Him, the duo of actress/vocal goddess Zoey Deschanel and folk rocker/producer M. Ward, has been added to the bill as the opening band. Doubly cool.
