It’s not every day you get a chance to see the next big thing before they blow up.
It’s more like every fourth or fifth day. . . depending on how many gigs Walking Spanish is playing that week.
Walking Spanish recently released my favorite album of 2011, "Wishbones," and may not be long for venues as small and awesome as these.
Alex Nelson (lead singer, guitarist and songwriter) and the boys (Timothy Picchi on bass, Christopher Haislet on keys, Robert Mills II on drums and Thomas Gunterman on violin) put on a phenomenal, high-energy rock show, peppering their staggeringly good original material with a variety of tasty covers that included Mother Hips, Allman Brothers and Depeche Mode.
These guys are going to be stars. I’m going to be able to say that I saw them "way back when." Will you?
Walking Spanish plays the Torch Club on Wednesday, April 20. Tickets are $4.00.
You read that correctly.
I’ll see you on the dance floor.
