There's Something Happening Here

From 2018, please enjoy friend of PowerPop (and moi) Joe Benoit...

...and the lead off track of his forthcoming solo album Too Old to Be a Rock Star.

Apart from being stone gorgeous, that song seems obviously relevant to our current national trauma, but I won't beat you over the head about that.

In any case, Joe used to front a killer NYC power pop band called The Regulars (you can read and hear more about them over HERE) and he's super talented. He also recently, out of the great goodness of his heart, contributed angelic harmony vocals to a new Floor Models song.

I'll keep you posted as to when his album is coming out. I should add that he's doing a solo gig on October 19th, starting at 8:30 pm, at the fabulous Gutter Bar in Williamsburg... if you're in Brooklyn that evening check him out. Here's the info:

200 N 14th street
Brooklyn, NY 11249

And tell 'em PowerPop sent you.

Oh, yeah. Ordering this one.

After what happened Saturday, I think I need to play this song on a continuous loop.

My sentiments exactly. My type of music too. One thing though. It's not WE who have to open our eyes. WE have to figure out one of two things: how to take control of the legislative and executive branches of government OR how to open THEIR eyes.

Scratch that. There's only one thing we have to figure out. Because it's a waste of time to figure out how to open THEIR eyes.
