The Indelicates Visit the US

So The Indelicates have once again come over to the USA, not the first time BUT it is the first glorious time they will make it to New England.
And not ONCE but TWICE, they play the Cantab Lounge in Cambridsge on Thursday and The Speakeasy in Providence RI on Friday.
We saw The Indelicates at SXSW in 2008
and I blogged about how much I loved their album Songs For Swinging Lovers noting it as one of my favourites of 2011.
From the press release I quote 'Essentially the joint project of Simon Indelicate (formerly a performance poet and author of ‘The Book Of Job: The Musical’ – revived in 2011) and Julia Indelicate (an acclaimed documentary photographer) The Indelicates are a piano and guitar-led pop/rock act from Sussex, UK. Taking their musical cues from folk and classical sources - as well as the broad spectrum of British indie rock – they write melodic, edgy and intellectually coherent songs that have been consistently well-received in the UK and abroad.'
But the reason I love them is their wit, their satire and their refusal to accept.
Listen and love and go see them on Thursday and Friday.
