It’s Hard to Mention the Group WHY? Without Extra Explanation

Yet if you read my review of their latest album you won’t worry much. While I first heard Yoni + Co years ago I never thought they would actually remain relevant. But leave it to some clever songwriting and a pretty steadfast musical ethic (get in, make a scene, get out) to create some noteworthy records. They’ve grown. Speaking of…

The first line in my quick review of Missoula’s King Elephant references “growing up.” Can I just clarify that it’s a time (and many places) that I love, and the end result is irrelevant. Really, when are we done growing up? I could go deeper but if you listen to the band you might get what I mean. The DIY ethic in King Elephant is as infallible as my yearning to remain young and I can’t wait to see Tim Goessman’s documentary about their tour.

Wait! Before you go pour another cup of coffee, read about how it affects my little Montana village in this week’s arts column.

As for the Twins, I think they traded some good infielders for a crapshoot of pitchers. Grapefruit League starts on Saturday, so we’ll see what surprises they might have…
