I remember when we broke up the first time saying this is it, I’ve had enough, because like we hadn’t seen each other in a month when you said you needed space –
Amy, Hannah, me, & Sarah. Holly was busy soundchecking. The Findlay sisters are a ridiculously talented group of girls, and when I had the opportunity to meet them at the soundcheck for their show at the Corner Hotel on Saturday night, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of both amazement and inadequacy.
Last night was warm and sticky, and the tiny little bandroom at Smith St’s Grace Darling Hotel was absolutely packed. Normally, you wouldn’t expect such a crowd for a couple of cover bands, but if you’d seen the calibre of these performances, you’d understand.
