Back in October, I went to the Way Over Yonder music festival in Santa Monica. We saw several bands play, but one of the most memorable sets from that night was from First Aid Kit, a band I wasn’t really familiar with before the festival. They played beautiful music, had great stage presence, and looked like they were completely in love with what they were doing. Afterward, I came home and listened to their debut album on repeat for days, and wondered how I didn’t fall in love with them sooner.
Thankfully, they are coming back to LA in May to play a show at the El Rey, which is just a block away from our apartment. And I have tickets! I am so excited to see them again.
