Every time I think I am not a judgemental person, instances like the one surround this song happen and I am reminded that I always need to be more open minded.
I was flipping through the 32 newsletter emails that flood my mailbox (why do I sign up for these emails and look through EVER-SINGLE-ONE everyday? One day I will have an answer for you), and in my Paste Magazine daily email, the words “Caveman Releases In the City, tour dates” came up and I though to myself,
“Ha Caveman… Sounds like a pretty generic and uninteresting band, I think I’ll pass”.
Scrolling back up the page, I saw the words again and this time thought,
“Maybe Caveman is some hidden gem of a band, and since they are releasing tour dates, maybe there will be one in LA, and since I’m going to lunch with my friend soon to map out all the concerts we are going to hit in the next month, maybe I can add this one to the list”… That’s a lot of thought for a band I was going to write off 20 seconds ago, I know.
Upon clicking on the link and listening to the sound cloud player, I realize that they’re actually pretty good. Nothing amazing, but when seen live could potentially be a WOOOOOOOOWWWW experience.
I’ve been struggling with material for my upcoming radio show (you all better listen in) and I think I’ve just found another song to add to my playlist.
Moral of this story ladies and gents… Don’t judge a
book song by it’s cover band’s name.
Happy Thursday :)
