Tilly Is Just Not Dark Enough for The Dark Stuff

I'll be staying in tonight rather than going to see Tilly and the Wall at Sokol Underground. I find Tilly to be pretty much Omaha's most boring band. Let me re-state that. Omaha's most boring band - that has a national following. The group is celebrating the release of their second CD, Bottoms of Barrels, on Team Love Records.

Team Love is Conor Oberst's (Bright Eyes) label, and the band is on it due to their friendship with His Brightness. I have a ton of respect for Conor Oberst, and I like his music a great deal. But his taste in other bands is pretty questionable.

Don't take my word for it. The entire album can be downloaded for free at the Team Love website. That is part of the agreement Conor makes with bands on his label. They must allow the album to be downloaded for free. Sure, it's a questionable business decision. But, hey, if you're releasing music no one would want to buy anyway, I guess it's a pretty solid concept.

Apparently I'm in the minority here in Omaha, as tonight's show is sold out.
