It's my first post! I have to talk about my current favorite band!

Hubcap City (from Belgium) used to be just Hubcap City. Formed in 1999 from the ashes of my other favorite band, Smoke (you'll hear from them later), Hubcap City were "the band" for me. You know what I mean. In high school, they were the band I saw more than any other, the band who converted me from a fanboy going to huge arenas to a fanboy going to tiny clubs (and, sometimes, under bridges). They were the band I first idolized, then got to know, soon realizing that, not only were they mere humans, but that that was their most godlike quality.
Back then it was just Bill Taft on guitar and vocals and Will Fratesi on random percussion. About two years ago, Bill let Matthew Proctor join on all sorts of noisemakers, changed the name to Hubcap City (from Belgium) (they're actually from Atlanta), and started letting almost anybody play with them. Sometimes this works out beautifully. Other times it just ends up being about pissing people off as much as possible.
This is from their acoustic show at A Cappella Books in Atlanta, two months ago. In addition to the three core members, they had Kat on violin, and Terry on musical saw. The bookstore had no microphones, so this is just pure, beautiful music. If Hubcap City (from Belgium) were capable of fitting such a clich├ęd description, I'd call it backporch folk music, but this is different, better. Think of an absurdist Charles Bukowski, 50 years younger, with a perfect intuitive grasp of what notes to play at each specific moment, leading a group of people who believe nothing is sacred but quality. Then listen and realize that HC(FB)'s music is just impossible to describe.

HCFB just played in the atrium of 7 Stages. After they finished playing the theme from The Man With The Golden Arm, a homeless L5P trombone player showed up and started playing too. He had been using his trombone case as a cane earlier
