I Like This Song - Tripping Daisy's "My Umbrella" / by Prewitt Scott-Jackson

I Like This Song celebrates songs by local bands sans clichéd music journo over-analysis.

The furthest we take the dissection of songs featured here is, well, you guessed it: "I Like This Song." 


Surely you've heard the news by now but Tripping Daisy is back y'all!!!

Per the band's social media pages on Jan. 4th, The Daisy are set to perform at this year's Homegrown Music & Arts Festival May 13th, 2017.

All the feels + happy face emoji x holy meerkat(!) because I will be seeing Tripping Daisy on stage once again in this lifetime.

It's been nearly 18 years since they performed under the Tripping Daisy moniker. To give you an idea, this is what I looked like last time I saw Tripping Daisy live ...

When their album Bill re-released on Island Records and my ears first set upon that otherworldly opening track "My Umbrella," it changed my outlook on what local D/FW bands were capable of, it gave me a great sense of pride to say, "That's right, this band is from my hometown." 

And now, in 2017, after a year's worth of shit bad news, they're back. Praise Saint DeLaughter, they're back.

Prekindle has tix for sale here.

One last thing: I like this song.
