Earlier this year (much earlier – like January or February), I discovered the band “hellogoodbye”. They were from California, kind of indie but not totally independent. On a label, but not over produced. I tried to go see them when I was in LA, but we couldn’t make it happen. Still, I dug their music. I love running to their music – and just yesterday I went to their site and realized that they know have a full length cd out. I have to get it this weekend.
When I was in Cali, I ended up at the gym with my cousin (hi Jen!) and while running on the treadmill, I watched their new music video which had made it’s way onto MTV2 – MTV2 is like oldschool MTV – all music videos. It rocks. I felt like I knew this really cool secret – I knew about this band.
Tonight, I started my holiday job at the mall (it’s sooo much fun!) and I was walking by Hollister, when I recognized a song coming out of that horrendous box they call a store. It was hellogoodbye.
Secret’s out. Hellogoodbye rocks, and they’ve made it to Hollister. I’m upset about their success. I like it when I know about bands before everyone else (John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, just to name a few.)
I’m more mad that the song is being played in Hollister. I feel so old.
