Somehow I’ve been listening to Somebody That I Used to Know by Gotye on repeat for the past week and haven’t gotten sick of it yet. This cover by Walk off the Earth is so excellent, not just because of how good it sounds but also because of how it was performed.
Last Thursday I saw The Good Life play at Bottom of the Hill with Victoria and Megan. With the exception of the obnoxiously loud drunk girl dropping pint glasses nearby, it was one of the better shows I’ve been to in a while. Tim Kasher is just a great performer and he really pours his heart into the music. Bottom of the Hill is a small venue, but for a band like The Good Life, the intimacy is entirely appropriate. They played a lot of fan favorites and even covered Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain,” which was pretty cool. They finished strong with “Album of the Year” as seen in the video above.
