Take 2@2 for Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017 Red Wing Roots Music Festival just announced a whole lotta additions to this year’s lineup. A portion of the beverage sales from the beer gardens supports WNRN.
Darlingside is coming to Red Wing Roots this year. This band which grew out of Williams College quickly won over the WNRN staff thanks to their vocal harmonies, romantic lyricism, and quick wits. Darlingside’s songs “Good for You” and “White Horses” are now staples on WNRN.
When Darlingside toured through Virginia they performed at The Southern Café & Music Hall with David Wax Museum. The crowd enjoyed the live versions of tunes from Darlingside’s Birds Say album. Then they performed this cover from their also avian titled EP Whippoorwill.
“1979” is from Smashing Pumpkins. The song was an Alternative Radio hit in the mid-nineties. The video featuring teens having a carefree day got regular rotation on MTv, VH1, among others. The tune is from the 1995 album Mellon Collie & the Infinite Sadness.
I hope you enjoy today’s Take 2@2, sponsored by Brown Automotive Group.
