Yes, I like this band for other reasons besides their name. Please.
More dirty freakouts.
But also, they have good taste in cities/locations. Yes, there is the choosing to name themselves after my favorite city of my entire life so far, but there's more.
They're hitting up Belfast on their European tour. And not only that, they're playing at the Menagerie, at the Ormeau Road on University Street. Shitty dive not without highly unprincipled paramilitary affiliations. They play Reggae and Soul and won't let you wear football colours inside, and it's the only bar I could reliably find Newcastle Brown, too. I have mad respect for a band who can manage to book the best seedy bar in a foreign city.
UPDATE: Belfast informant tells me that Menagerie was freed from paramilitary associations and is now owned by David Holmes. I guess that explains why the music got better. Informant assures that Menagerie is still way seedy.
But anyway, and perhaps even better, Mi Ami is coming to Richmond. (To the Triple.)
We are all travelling through space and time.
Mi Ami plays with Thank You at the Triple on March 8th. Vaya con dios, dudes.
