The very first time we saw The Lone Bellow we had just been through this ourselves, as it was just after the marathon bombing. Their music was undeniably a part of our own healing. They were a new discovery for us, this largely unknown band, in a tiny space, reminding us that music is a gift to be shared, a simple and meaningful way to connect us to one another. And here we were again, in NYC, a city that also knows the sorrow and fear of being under attack, with these same musicians, in need, again, of their words and music.
We can tell you that just like in previous shows this band was flawless. We can tell you that we cried, we laughed, we danced, and sang loudly. We are grateful, as always, for this band and everything they do. We want to give you all of the details from the NYC shows, but we’re just not quite ready. Perhaps in a few days time we will be. For right now, though, we want to hold these memories close to our hearts, as we are holding the people of Paris close to hearts, hopeful that they will soon see light from the darkness, and that they, too, will heal.
