Haim at Santos: New York City, NY – 10:57pm 08.02.12

One of my most trusted music sources, my friend Jesse, told me to check out a band called Haim when we were looking to book talent for a concert we were throwing over the summer. There are few bands you listen to the first time (before pop culture plays them so many times you are brainwashed into liking them) and immediately love them. Even less often do you tell your friends how awesome a new band is, put them on, and your friends actually agree.

These girls are going to be stars. Not only do they have the sound, they have the look, they have the story, and the pure raw talent to be huge. A dangerous combination and a necessary one in a world where few artists can go beyond the one-hit wonder threshold.
