Judith and Holofernes

Judith and Holofernes - Dairymen & Festa Queens

Sunday night we went out to see our friend Matt play at the Rite Spot Café. We had planned to leave after his set, but we were talking to Matt when the next band started, Judith and Holofernes. They were only about half way through their first song when I turned to anne marie and said ‘I think we need to stay for this’. They were great! I really liked them a lot. I’m so glad we stayed.

I bought their CD, Dairymen & Festa Queens, at the show. It’s also available via iTunes. It’s very good. It didn’t have all the tracks I liked from the show on it, but I still highly recommend it. Their website says they have a new CD coming out (last month). It’s not ready yet, but I emailed the band and they said it may be ready by their next show (3.28.05).

A description on the site says ‘The music that they play is best described as “Fado Core,” a mix of indie rock and a particular style of Portuguese folk music (fado) known for its obsession with anguish, longing, and the bittersweet twists of everyday life’. They have some sample songs on their site. I highly recommend checking them out.
