Wednesday tune: Blitzen Trapper

It’s SXSW and the music is on this week!  I was beyond thrilled to find out one of my favorite bands, Blitzen Trapper, will be playing eight shows during SXSW.  I love these guys and will go see all eight shows if possible.  We discovered Blitzen Trapper several years ago and I immediately loved the feel of the music. The band is from Portland and are considered an experimental country/folk band but in my opinion they are so much more than this.  They have a unique sound I love along with phenomenal lyrics…I can listen to their albums over and over and over (and I do).  My love for Blitzen Trapper went to a new level when we saw them live at the Utopia Fest this past September.  Ever since, I can’t get enough of this band and will do everything I can to be front row joe at as many shows as possible this week.  Here is a great video – Love The Way You Walk – and some pictures from our trip to Utopia back in September.

Utopia Fest family trip.  Yes, this is what we do with our free time…camp and watch music.  No fancy hotels for this fam!

Really, if you haven’t listened to this band, you should.  Hope to see you at one of the shows!
