I claim 'Wife'!


I had the pleasure of seeing Husbands perform live for the first time this past Saturday, and... wow. If any of you are feeling a little jaded, with music or life in general, go see this band. Not only are they local, but they're so freaking cheerful you can't help but have a smile on your face watching them perform.

The band labels themselves as Ska / Punk / Reggae, but should really add a third slash followed by 'gymnasts' because I have to believe that Justin Gonyea installed some sort of sub-floorboard trampoline into one corner of Wasted City for that much bouncing to have gone down.

Did you know that Tyson Valyou can simultaneously play a Casio B3 and do the running man? And yes ladies, he's single.

Plus any excuse to see Alex Pond's face while drumming is worth it, you know? That's got to be one of the highlights of the greater Burlington scene right there.

Anyway, they're playing January 25th at The Monkey House. I'll be there, and so should you. I might even consider taking my chucks out of retirement for the occasion, if only to better get my skank on...
