Once upon a time, I had a radio show that only played bands currently performing in the District. That show is super dead, so we’ve resurrected it (with way more words and far less radio) in the form of this column. Every day I’ll review a song from a band playing in D.C. that night. The rules are, 1. I can only listen to the song once and 2. I only have until the end of the song to finish my review.
BETSY AND THE BICYCLES – COFFEE PROM
So this starts with some cute banter about cowbell. I love the idea of a coffee prom. That sounds way better than regular prom, but probably not as good as booze prom. Anyway I like this, the music is very chill but whoever is singing sounds like they are dying and I like it. This is all great. I wish someone would ask me to coffee prom. Who do you think is the most popular coffee at coffee prom? It would probably be a Frappuccino or something. Damn Starbucks.
