american aquarium live at old town tavern, 9.20.08

Posted by gregor on Thursday, August 4th, 2011

last year sometime, american aquarium and their record, small town hymns, somehow and mysteriously came into my field of vision. i thought they were a “new” band but dammit if i hadnt been missing out since like 05, which is when i think they formed. shit, i think i even missed em when they stormed through new orleans last year. either way, said record ended up at #3 on best of 2010 list and really up until about a month or so ago, thats all of theirs i had listened to. well, all that has changed cause i have dug into their catalogue and its all full of awesome.

i cannot recommend digging into their catalogue enough. buy something via amazon or via their general store.

      hey gang! i am going to keep this short, sweet and to the point. this whole site is selfish, but lets be honest most sites that are run by normal joes/janes are selfish as shit. this is not a bad thing at all, cause we all want to push the music we love and want […]
