(Comet) Do you like Minus the Bear? Do you like the Lonely Forest? The Quiet Ones? Argo? If you answered yes to any of the above, you should know that members of those bands have a side project called Black Hills. Next question: Do you like the Grateful Dead? If you answered yes, then you should definitely attend tonight's show and pick up a copy of Black Hills' debut 7-inch on local label Porchlight Records. If you answered no, what's your problem? Have you ever actually heard American Beauty or Workingman's Dead? Okay, maybe the Dead comparison is a bit of a kiss of death for an indie band, but it shouldn't be. Don't indie fans like Americana, classic rock, psychedelic journeys, fretboard awareness, and solid grooves? Black Hills got that shit in spades.
