A Night Out: The Raveonettes!
Last night I got to scratch another band off my must see bucket list - The Raveonettes! I've loved them for years, but something always prevented me from seeing them live the few times they're rolled into town. I'm gonna go ahead and blame my husband's evil work schedule for that! But the stars alligned this time and the Raveonettes played the Fine Line on a day that my husband had off from work.
The show was awesome, and I got to hear some of my favorite songs which is always good. I think the only thing taking away from the experience was the venue, the Fine Line might be my least favorite place to see a show in the Twin Cities, it's small, the sound system isn't great, and the place is just designed oddly. But even with that, The Raveonettes were made of awesome!
The new album Raven In The Grave is great, I've been listening to it a ton in my car! If you're new to the band and want to give them a go, I would say pick up either the new album to check out their most current sound, or pick up Chain Gang Of Love for their classic sound. Chain Gang of Love is one of my all time favorite albums so you really can't go wrong with that one :)
