Shake, Walk Off The Earth
…I wonder if the band would find it weird that they’ve got a 43 year old conservative blogger as a fan. Well, 44 years old, in about a half hour.
Free advertising? Gosh, I’m sure they hate that.
Seriously, there are some acts that would spurn fans for not being “the right kind of people”.
But those acts also have a level of pretension that I’ve not seen evidenced by Walk Off the Earth. (And for some reason, nearly everybody I’ve met who is a fan of theirs, is a Conservative of some stripe or other. I have no idea why. It’s not like they’re remaking “Taxman” or “Won’t Get Fooled Again” to appeal to us.)
I suspect it may be because the band knows how to play a remarkable number of instruments, sing coherently, and write lyrics that aren’t decadent nihilism. Plus, they’re hardcore DIY when it comes to making music videos. 🙂
