Earlier this week, I stopped by Tierra Coffee Roasters on Madison for a tasting of the two newest additions to their selection of fair trade and organic coffees. The spotlighted coffee came from two individual farms in Honduras and each had a distinctive taste that the staff talked in detail about from the background of the coffee to the taste influences of each blend. I’m no coffee aficionado so when I’m able to enjoy coffee black without even dreaming of adding milk, that’s how I rate coffee as amazing. Be sure not to miss their next tasting!
Anyhow, due to the coffee tasting, I missed out on catching the opening band, No Line & Circle, at Upstate Concert Hall and arrived just in time to catch the beginning of the band NO‘s set. The Los Angeles-based band hit the Twitter jackpot, with their username literally being “@no” and the band joked that aside from that, they are hard to find on the Internet. (This proved immediately true when I later tried to find their discography by way of Google). Also, I couldn’t help but think it’d be great if they’d collaborate with the band FUN on an ironically depressing song.
