Palomino @ Velour, Sat Apr 12, 8:PM

There's a great show at Club Velour in Provo this Saturday (135 North University Ave):

Palomino (Check them out on MySpace). This is Palomino's CD Release concert, so it's a great time to go down and get acquainted with the band, because now you can take their music home with you. Band of Annuals and Matt Hopper will also be at the show, but I'm not familiar with either of their music. That's the beauty of going to these small venue shows, though, you get to see bands that might become your next favorite thing.

As you know (if you've been following my concert posts for awhile), love Club Velour though I do, I will only go through the trouble of driving all the way down into the heart of the valley that I hate for a really great band. And Palomino is a really great band, so it's definitely worth a journey into the happy land.

I saw the frontman open as a solo act last time I went down to see David Hopkins, and I was so moved by his music that I made a mental note of the name Palomino -- and that mental note actually stuck! Usually my mental notes are written on virtual Post-It Notes that have fallen into a pile of dirt and so aren't very sticky anymore. But Palomino was so amazing that I made sure to write it down on a brand new virtual Post-It Note. You can trust that any mental note that actually sticks in my mind is a mental note worth noting.

So come on down if you have nothing else going on. Ticket prices are about $10 cash, and I've never left Velour feeling like the drive wasn't worth it, so I'm sure you'll feel that way too.

He does have a beautiful voice. It's even more striking live.
