Watching the trio, along with bassist Jason Pipkin and drummer Justin Glasco, sweat their way through a ninety-minute set plus an encore, frenetically dancing around stage and pouring so much furrow-browed passion into their vocals, I came away feeling this is simply a group of talented people who are fortunate enough to get a chance to do what they love. You can see the joy on their faces and hear the excitement in their voices. They aren’t taking fame for granted, it’s all still fun and new for them.
Back in May, after we saw The Lone Bellow perform at MassMOCA, we really struggled to write a recap of the show that sounded fresh. I suppose this is the downside of going to so many of the band's shows - it starts to feel like we are saying the same, gushing things about their music and their performance over and over again! So we were grateful when Matthew Rector of Old School Record Review got in touch with us to share his review of the show. We enjoyed hearing his first-timer perspective, and we are happy to share it with you on our site.

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.
