Welcome Back, Shondies (Move to Tucson)

Posted By on Fri, May 18, 2012 at 4:00 PM

I don't often write mash notes for local bands or musicians on the Range. My editor probably thinks that's a good thing. Anyway, the last time I professed my love for a band was Seashell Radio. Yeah, I still love them.

This time I'm professing love for the Shondies, a Brooklyn-based group that should just move here. What is our connection with that city, anyway? Seems like we have many Brooklyn transplants, and I know many Tucsonans in Brooklyn who miss us every winter and a good eggee's when spring arrives.

They play tonight at Plush with the Cordials and Amy Rude, 8 p.m., 340 E. 6th St.

The first time I saw them they happened to play with Seashell at Plush not long after our lovely Gov. Jan Brewer signed SB1070 into law. It didn't make any of our crap go away, but for one night they brought some good music to Tucson. And they keep coming back.
