I don’t hate The Dears, per se, I just don’t love them. They never really stood a chance with me, because I was introduced to them by an ex-boyfriend years ago and I can’t listen to them without thinking of him.
To say that the relationship ended badly, would be a rather vague understatement that wouldn’t fully capture the magnitude of its failure, or the subsequent awkward encounters that continue to this day because we’ve always shared roughly the same circle of friends.
I still sort of want to hit up that show though because they’re playing with some good people (Jets Overhead and Black Diamond Bay). If I run into him this weekend, that will probably make up my mind for me, but we’ll see.
The show is at Starlite on the 3rd, so either way, I have a month to vacillate.
