Kevin Devine- Mesa Arizona
Probably my favorite of his newer stuff
“Three people with guitars and we had to mouth the solo”
I saw Kevin Devine and the Front Bottoms together last night in PA. It was one of the best combinations Ive seen in a while. Really small personal venue, both were running their own merch tables which was awesome cuz you got the chance to go and bullshit with them. First time seeing the front bottoms, they were amazing. Kevin’s set might have been the best I’ve seen. He managed to play a song off of every album aside from circle gets the square. He played a lot of his political tracks which was incredible, I’ve never heard him play No Time Flat before. A solo Yr Damned Ol Dad, cotton crush, and tap-dance may have made the night.
I’m more into his folky, rock albums like split the country and put your ghost to rest but fuck, I really love what he’s been doing with brother’s blood and between the clouds. This song: ughhhhhh so good
All the bad blood that hijacked my heart
But I got what I asked for,
so don’t even start
“You were never a victim.
So own what you did, son, admit what you are.”
I asked for perspective, and it untied my hands
I see the role I played. I chose my own way.
Can’t blame me for that.
Don’t put me through hell.
Cause now I see through you.
Believe what you need to.
Go haunt someone else.
BAHAHAHAHA I forgot this existed. Kevin Devine, you make my life
—Lord, I Know We Don't Talk
Kevin Devine- Lord, I Know We Don’t Talk
‘Cause I’ve lost my faith in man
Just like I once lost faith in you
And I’ve been covering all kinds of ground
Thinking hard ‘bout what else i could lose
Still my favorite singer/songwriter. Make the Clocks Move and Split the Country on repeat today. It’s a day for some kd and Elliot Smith.
