((Idlewild)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

All right, I'm aware that Idlewild may fall into the "guilty pleasure" category (for those being kind). And maybe they're worth feeling guilty about if you've got a problem with standard verse-chorus-verse songs where chord count is not at a premium and inspired lyrics are an afterthought at best. Sure, they aren't changing the world one song at a time. But you know, who cares.

I like Idlewild and when I put them on, I almost always sing along. It's just so darn catchy. Their live shows are good too, and of all the shows I saw at Siren Fest a few years ago, their set stands out. I mean, it wasn't crazy insane or anything. There weren't any pyrotechnics, prideful posturing, or wicked instrument tricks. It was simply a solid show full of solid songs sung by a solid singer. If that's so bad, then call the cops, because I'm guilty as charged (please don't call the cops).
