When my friend Paige invited me to go see Ha Ha Tonka at the Troubadour in West Hollywood last night, I was initially interested because I'd never seen a show at the Troubadour before & had heard nothing but great things about the venue. I didn't know the band Ha Ha Tonka but Paige was singing their praises. She told me, the first time she saw them perform, she wasn't expecting much since she didn't really know them or their music & they blew her away. When a friend who I think has excellent taste in music tells me something like that, I listen. These country boys from Missouri had me & the entire crowd totally enthralled.
Plus, the Troubadour is SO sweet! It's small & intimate & the acoustics are perfect. I can't wait to go back on April 30th to see Antlers & Phantogram!
