WATCH: Hoe Garden (live at Modern Cult)

Formerly Sorry Mom, Hoe Garden are comprised of three folks well younger than me, a fact worth of note only for the how accomplished they are. It’s a fun video that captures that way you feel when you just start playing music, meant here in the most positive sense. Things go wrong. Singer guitarist Caroline Taylor endures a broken shoulder strap and contrary mic stand. The songs are a little angular and jangly, but that’s what makes it great; hearing the crowd sing along and having fun with them not at their expense (as in: there isn’t any nasty heckling) is what makes this town so great, and Hoe Garden only enrich that. Check out their most recent live performance below and get into it.
