King Dude at the Parish

Last night my buddy TJ came into town to play in his band King Dude. It had been a few years since I’ve seen him perform and in that time, the band has gone from its solo, neofolk roots to more Americana-influenced (and dark) folk band. Nothing like death ballads to liven up an audience! And yet seeing the crowd’s reception was impressive. As always, hanging with old friends is a great way to spend the weekend. Check out TJ’s clothing label Actual Pain and King Dude’s music here.
