The Pains of Being Pure at Heart instores

One instore tomorrow at Pure Groove 1.15 and another on Saturday at Rough Trade East, 12 noon. I am actually listening to them for the first time now, even though I’ve been seeing them all over the blog world for AGES. Basically, the deal with me and them is the same as how I am with Casiotone For The Painfully Alone. I think Casiotone For The Painfully Alone is one of the worst band names ever, and so I refused to listen to them for ages. Then Adam posted a video with one of their songs and a dancing cat in it, knowing it would force me into listening. I think CFTPA are actually ok, I just hate their name. Anyway, so it’s the same thing with TPOBPAH. I don’t like their band name. Last year they had a Pure Groove instore and I didn’t go, purely because I don’t like their name. But I read so many nice things about them I will put aside my band name prejudices and investigate them, I’m actually really intrigued…

    They are great! I understand the name thing, especially with Casiotone… it’s just one of those slightly pretentious names that makes you go :|

    In the same boat, exams :[ otherwise I would jump at the opportunity. Don’t talk me into it!
