One of the things we’ve missed most during the pandemic is live music, and we suspect we’re not alone. Whether it was going to see a friend’s band, going to an open mic to listen and share, or just dropping by a bar that had reliably good acts and checking out what was going on, the lack of live music has left one of the bigger holes in our life. This week at S&W we’re dipping into our archives to celebrate some of the great live performances we’ve witnessed over the years.
First up is Flying Pace, a band we saw at the great Footlight bar and music venue. We were there early for la sudar’s EP release but ended up sticking around for most of the afternoon and caught this great band having their record release / swan song show! Too bad really, we enjoyed their dreamy pop sensibilities, especially this song, Pollen. One of the great joys in life is seeing a band at random and ending up loving the show, and though Flying Pace may be no more, we’ll always be grateful for this experience.
