Handsome Dan and His Gallimaufry

I just heard a really cool band playing on my way back from the gym, here at Fanshawe. Handsome Dan and His Gallimaufry, a London-based indie band that I’d describe as Fleet Foxes meets Wallflowers meets My Morning Jacket, with a tinge of country-folk sensibility. Just awesome, they had a good old steel mixer up on stage, three guitarists, great vocals and an excellent drummer who provided catchy, powerful backing to an incredible band. Insightful, mature lyrics that go beyond the pseudo-pop of most of today’s indie pretenders and a kind of inspiration that those with true talent and potential like this band carry with aplomb. They’re also playing tomorrow night at Outback Shack campus pub here at Fanshawe.
