About this time last year I saw Parenthetical Girls live in Whelan’s and said it was my gig of the year and now I think Horse Feathers in Academy 2 on Friday night was my gig of 2009. And I went to some fantastic gigs this year I must say. I’ve been a huge fan of them ever since hearing Finch On Saturday played on Pearl’s show on Phantom a few years back. Beautiful music and when live it’s even better. Good banter between the band and the very small but enthusiastic crowd.
