The Best Friends are a phenomenal band from Bloomington, IN. Let me tell you the very true story about how their awesomeness was revealed to me. My project My Pal Dragon was getting set to play a show at Rhino’s. It was cold, It was the Friday before Halloween & there was a Guided By Voices show up the street. You see where this is going right? It was empty. About halfway through our set, no less than five people waltzed into the club, in wonderful costumes, dancing their arses off, followed by 10 more, and so on. It was The Best Friends, and they brought a party with them, that’s what they do: They bring the party!
I cant recall a time I have ever seen that happen anywhere ever before or since, but it made an impression on me. The band took the stage a little late as I recall, after some problems with a defunct keyboard. They blew my mind, and I was an instant fan. Their songs are well written, witty, whimsical and other adjectives beginning with a wubleyou. (Seussical, I know)
There songs speak for themselves. You can download them HERE!
I know there is a lack of bass and mandolin on this recording. The band has those things, the file was corrupt.
I cant wait for their record.
