Ever see a hoedown turn into a mosh pit? Because I hadn’t until last night when Trampled By Turtles played to what was indeed a sold out First Ave. It was a blast and I can’t wait to see them again! And I don’t even have to! Seriously, if they ever perform anywhere remotely close to your town – go see them.
This morning I was looking for a good video of TBT live for this post when I stumbled on something a little better than video evidence of the hoedown-mosh pit convergence. Those videos do exist, but this little gem is audio only of a cover song recorded live. This seems to be a recurring theme in their shows because last night they covered Dylan’s “Positively 4th Street” and I found a video of them covering Nirvana (though it wasn’t “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” which they could totally rock). I wonder if they’ll cover something different tonight, but this clip is TBT performing “Mad World” by Tears For Fears that I’ve been listening to all day. Enjoy!
