Bad Veins

We left the Deep Ellum Brewing Company’s First Annual Party and walked over to Main street where the Deep Ellum Market was in full bloom. I’ve heard some good music at the Markets – the bands set up on the sidewalk outside a recording studio on Main. I’ve seen Ducado Vega and June Marieezy – they were all really good.

Today was a duo called Bad Veins – a guitar/singer/keyboardist and a drummer. They said they usually play with a backing tape deck (named Irene) but decided to be a little more laid back and simply play. They were pretty darn good. They had a little cadre of fans sitting in plastic chairs in the street. How cool.

A fan.

  1. I always love these kinds of posts of yours Bill, especially when you have a music sample to complement your great snapshots. Thanks for sharing. 🙂 I like his voice, they have a nice sound. 🙂

    • Thanks for the nice comment. I was thinking about how many times, over the years, I spent hundreds of dollars for huge concerts that I didn’t like. Local music, in small venues, is so much better.

      I’m starting to make an effort to attend local events and plan to do more postings like this.

      • You are very welcome! 🙂

        That’s a great idea. I love concerts and I usually am very excited about seeing live music, but you’re right, there’s a lot of great stuff that we can easily miss out on, live on our own doorsteps…!
