jonaswildman was kind enough to burn me three albums for my 15 hour drive home from Michigan. One of those albums was from Hollow & Akimbo, an Ann Arbor based band that kicks ass. As Jonas said to me, "I can't believe this band isn't huge." -So far, I agree.

As for me, I sat around a fire a few nights ago and picked a guitar with my kids and family around. We sang a mean version of Twinkle Twinkle and only moments later my daughter pointed at the sky and said, "Look! I see a shooting star." We all looked up and saw the tail end of a meteor burning out across the sky. It was awesome. Trip report to come.

Saw Hollow and Akimbo the other night, in AnnArbor and they were amazing (especially for a 3pc). Went into both of the popular music stores in Ann Arbor ,were they are from, and the owners had never heard of them. Crazy, also their videos online have very few views and thy barely have a website, cd came out in Feb. I'm surprised they are not way bigger than they are, seems to be no push for them.
