I know you've seen this picture before. A band, kind of far away, with lots of strangers' heads in the foreground. They're rocking, but could be anyone. Oh, and it's blurry, because it's a cell phone picture taken without a flash or any fancy camera tricks. So why am I torturing you with these crappy pictures?
This is The Head and The Heart, and I want everyone to know how awesome they are. We saw them at the Vic last week, and the show seriously rocked. They're from Seattle and have been playing shows in Chicago for about a year now. They started at Schuba's, a tiny little club at the back of a bar. That was only one year ago, and this past week they sold out TWO shows at the Vic, which is one of the biggest venues of its type in Chicago and has a capacity of about 1,400.
If one person reads this and has a listen, I will be happy. Because as soon as you listen you'll be hooked, and I like sharing good music with people. So put down the Katy Perry CD, and listen to these guys! Look, I'll even make it easy for you. Click here to link to YouTube, and hear The Head and The Heart for yourself. You can thank me later. Enjoy!
