Earlier in the week, we posted a link to the Front Row episode about The Lone Bellow show at the Paradise back in November 2013. While the episode was great, and it was so fun to relive moments from that show, we were disappointed they didn't include some of the encore from that night. There is no doubt we would have been hooked on them just from the main part of the show. Their music, passion, and the connection between the band members and with the audience was evident, and absolutely drew us in. But the encore sealed the deal. Their silly banter and, um, interesting song choices made us laugh and smile so hard. The Lone Bellow takes their music seriously, but they clearly have so much fun performing, and they aren't afraid to be goofy, or to put themselves out there for the audience. Fortunately, Chris Van Slyke from the blog Boston Through My Eyes was smart enough to video most of the encore so we can share it here.
Who We Are
We are Abra and Bobbie, two friends living in Boston who go to a lot of concerts together. We saw The Lone Bellow, having never heard of them, and could not believe our good fortune in discovering such talent. We now try to go by the "Four-Hour-Rule", meaning if we can get to a show within four hours, we will be there, hopefully right up front.
