Northern Diver at Magnolia House tonight!

December 20th, 2010 · 6 Comments · By

I’ve only seen Northern Diver play 1½ times now, but they’ve quickly become one of my favorite local acts. It’s pretty incredible to think that their lead singer/songwriter Bailee had never written or performed music until a few months ago… but she totally knows what she’s doing, as do the other band members; c0-frontman Danny Zezeski, and the totally solid/professional rhythm section, drummer Geoff Otis and Daniel Sebring (formerly of Drunk Tigers), who seems to have taken over bass duties from Marie. Seriously, these guys are super good; I’ve had one song of theirs in particular stuck in my head for about a week.

So I’m excited to hear them again tonight, at a house show that should be a lot of fun. There’s two other acts on the bill: Hurricanes of Love (“atlanta psych folk”) and Herschel Stratego (“richmond folk comedy solo guy with uke”).

It starts at 9pm (not sure about the band order, I think Diver are on third?), and it’s at Magnolia House (once again, contact us or ask around if you need directions); remember to bring some bucks for the touring bands!

    yeah, it’s also the only one I could find — no idea who the photographer is, hope they’re OK with me using it! (got it off Northern Diver’s FB front page thing, so I’m assuming it’s kosher)

    well, I just googled “Northern Diver Charlottesville” and their FB page was the top thing… was able to grab the image without it asking me to log in, which was nice.

    I did have a fake FaceBook page for about a year (my name and face, but not me) but shit just got too confusing so I had them delete it.

    currently debating whether I can make the show or not … been horribly sick all day, breathing mucus, don’t think it’d be fair to inflict others with my presence at the time being. might just have to stay home a bottle of nyquil in the hopes that all will be well tomorrow…
