UMS Night Two Travelogue: Houses at hi-dive, Git Some at 3 Kings and more

UMS Travelogue, Night Two
7.23.10 | Baker District, South Broadway

I started out with Papa Bear at the Irish Rover, where the band's uber sincere Neutral Milk Hotel vibe proved a good start to the evening. The band boasts a small horn section, and I happened to be right in the trombone's line of fire, which made that a little loud in the mix, but the band was otherwise charming and easy to like -- the members made me think of a bunch of third-grade school portraits aged twenty years, but still just fundamentally playing on the playground.
