by Michael on Wednesday, December 15th, 2004

Last night Jenn and I braved the newly arrived cold weather to catch Kristin Hersh’s new band, 50 Foot Wave at the Iron Horse in Northampton, MA. This was an odd matchup to begin with, as I always think of the Iron Horse as being a venue better suited to a quieter sort of music […]
