Mmmmmm... Naked woman wielding flaming guitar.

A band with numerous great albums. Dig them and acknowledge.

The Waifs at The Iron Horse 5/03/08

Okay... My camera phone officially does not do the job from a medium distance in the Iron Horse.

The Waifs played to a packed house at the 7 PM show last night in Northampton, Massachusetts. They played old favorites and a number of new songs from their current release sundirtwater.

Again, I sat amazed by their musicianship, love for music, and the playful banter/humor that they spread throughout their set. Josh Cunningham is just amazing on guitar, ukulele and vocals; playing all instruments that he has built himself, according to a statement during the show by Vikki (Simpson) Thorn.

Then we come to the Simpson sisters, Donna and Vikki. Phenomenal voices, instrumental variety (harmonica, guitar) and not to objectify the two ladies, they are two incredibly gorgeous women with sexy Australian accents which melt me every time.

It was mentioned that they will be back in the U.S. for more shows in August, and I would highly recommend their catalog and live shows to anyone.
