The Head and the Heart represent the best of new indie rock.
I warned you yesterday that there wouldn't be a lot of choices today, but that doesn't mean that there aren't some great show options for your Easter Sunday. I, for one, will be at the Casbah watching The Head and the Heart. The Seattle band was recently picked up by Sub Pop Records and made their television debut this week on Conan, which you can watch here. This is indie folk rock at it's finest, and tickets were selling swiftly, so try to grab them online before the show or you might miss the chance to catch this buzz-worthy band.
