New Felice Brothers video :: "Frankie's Gun" (plus tour dates)



I saw New York's Felice Brothers perform this weekend at Outside Lands, and what an explosion! I never fancied myself as a massive accordion fan, but yeehaw. It's all good. Also, any song that has the lyric "Spit make a fender shine, Frankie's a friend-a-mine / Got me off a bender after long-legged Brenda died" (and isn't a Dylan song) gets props in my book. See my original write-up about them here, and a slew of headlining tour dates were announced today:

Good free show Friday, all local acts, Westword is saying it has been moved to the Skate Park ... the Kinetix are supposed to play at 7 p.m., if you haven't caught them, you need to.

Love that these guys are getting some pub. Just an amazing act. Looking forward to their Reclaim Festival show in Rutland, OH. It's a great outdoor location.
