09 Nov / Must Have Music: The Dimes
I don’t know about you, but last week was intense. Did you feel it? Sure, it was full of lots of good things (too many, perhaps–if that’s possible!), but it came at such a frantic pace, I found myself wanting to stop and take a break. And so when my good friend, Sophia, invited me out to Portland’s Lizard Lounge to see The Dimes play–I was game.
Live music and good convo? You can’t go wrong…
If you aren’t familiar with The Dimes already, you need to be. Their music is soulful, deep and moving. On top of that, they just plain rock. Even better–the guys themselves are actually really cool people (now THAT doesn’t happen very often, does it?).
They are so good, that I became a full-on groupie. And I’m the chick that makes fun of groupies! I hurried to buy up some CD’s, and have been writing to their tunes ever since.
Be sure to track down their version of John Lennon’s “Watching the Wheels” (my fave JL song, BTW). These guys are going to be BIG.
