While they’re not going to be stopping in Boston (truly a bummer, but they did try and couldn’t get anything scheduled), the awesome Happy Hollows will be crossing the great expanse to play a few shows here on the East Coast. If you’re not familiar with these guys yet, what are you waiting for? They’re pretty and ethereal, crazy and experimental, mystical and kinda whimsical as well.

East Coast Shows

Mar 3 – 9:00P – Black Cat Black Cat – Washington DC
Mar 4 – 8:00P – The North Star – Philadelphia, PA
Mar 5 – 11:30P – Cakeshop – NYC, NY

Review: The Happy Hollows ~ “Spells”


What I had in mind was a review of The Happy Hollows’ NEW release Spells, rather than an article of historic interest. Before we’re into a new year, let me just do this. The Happy Hollows – Sarah Negahdari, Chris Hernandez, and Charles Mahoney – are quite incredible live, but to truly appreciate the range of Sarah’s expressive vocals, the cornucopia of moods and styles, and fun/ferocious experimentation, you have to sit down at leisure with their amazing debut album, Spells. Which I finally did, jotting down my initial impressions upon hearing it, uninterrupted and at the forefront of my spinning but focused mind. I’m not promising that any of this will make any sense whatsoever, so I’ll summarize: they’re wonderful, it’s hard to believe this is just their first full-length release, and you should buy one. You should also see them, when they come back around. I felt privileged to be at T.T. The Bear’s that night.
