Yesterday I went to the Make Music Cambridge event, an awesome outdoor music festival with free live music at every street corner. There were tons of incredibly talented jazz bands, rock bands, singer chicks, violin players, etc. Absolute heaven.
One band I got to check out was Shanghai Thrills. (Naturally, I had to ask for a picture with them.)
Unfortunately I only caught the last song of their set (see below), but I really loved what I heard. Genuine, good rock sound. Super energetic and talented.– I think it’s really smart for local bands to perform at things like this. The exposure you get is fantastic. There was no common demographic of the audience. Just music lovers alike. Also! They’re playing at Harper’s Ferry on Monday June 30th. So you should gooooo. :)
Oh man. I want to be in a band. (Need some female backup vocals, boys?)
Check it out. Watch them. Enjoy. Did I mention that they’re incredibly adorable?
I love my happy music town. Good stuff happens here.
