You have no idea how much I love Elbow. The 5 piece band from Manchester makes music that is epic. It’s surprising to me that Elbow is not a household name in the USA, but I am doing my part. Every time I play their music for people, they immediately go out and get all their records – and you should. Their album “The Seldom Seen Kid” is easily one of my favorite albums of the 2000s. Elbow announced a US tour before summer started and it was one of my most anticipated concerts of 2011. It didn’t disappoint at all and in fact, I was overcome with emotion many times because I think their music is so beautiful. It wasn’t all tears of joy; however, as lead singer Guty Garvey kept the audience laughing in between songs with really funny stories. I was fortunate enough to meet the band and I am beyond thrilled to report – they are all such nice guys! Elbow – I consider meeting you one of the best belated birthday presents ever and thanks again for making music that has really made a positive impact on my life. Thanks for being so cool and please come back to New York soon!
Thanks again Elbow! I heart you!
