Tyger Tyger

In 3rd grade, we had a to memorize a poem. I memorized William Blake's "The Tyger". Reading it now, I'm 100% sure I had no idea what it meant. Just that I got to say the word "Tyger", and the words sounded cool together.

The same is kind of true for this band, whose show I tried pretty hard to get to last night, but failed miserably. After fighting traffic (and losing), I went home, moped, put their music on,  and baked some bread.  I'm 100% sure I have no idea what the lyrics mean, but the acoustic jazz ensemble overlaid by traditional Hindustani vocals in a sort of indie style...sounds SO cool together.  Like nothing you've ever heard.

And Guess what? If you live near Normal, IL; Cincinnati, OH; NYC; Indianapolis, IN; or here in home sweet Chicago, you can see them this month too! Which is good news for me (shows after the jump).

  1. What immortal hand or eye,
    Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
