The Dears

Hiro Ballroom was sparsely crowded when I arrived for the show on Thursday night (10/23), but filled up quickly as The Dears got ready to play. The best way to describe The Dears is epic and complicated, and if anyone were to force me to name my favorite band ever, of the 5 or 6 contenders The Dears always seem to float to the top. Murray Lightburn plays the tortured town crier of the apocalypse really well, and despite the melancholy and doom, it’s a trip you want to take with him because the music is just so damn good. They blazed through a set that relied heavily on new songs, which were good enough for me to go home and buy the new album immediately.” – Gabi
