I don't want to be like that
I don't want to be like you
The photo above was taken at Blondfire's last appearance in St. Louis, which happened a year ago at The Pageant when they opened for Surfer Blood and Foals. That's Erica Driscoll, whose voice can sound a lot like Metric's Emily Haines, depending on the song. Of course, they're both everlasting rock stars, no matter what they're singing.
Today's Jam of the Day is taken from Blondfire's latest album, Young Heart, and it's a song that was "written at the last minute right before the album was going to be mastered." THANK GOD there was enough time, because it's the perfect jam for summer (read: time to party with flasks and bad decisions).
Blondfire will be opening for The Chain Gang of 1974 on Tuesday, June 3rd, at The Demo in St. Louis (Doors: 7:30 pm / Show: 8:30 pm). Tickets are only $10, and can be purchased here.
