10 Reasons to Love The Head and The Heart

by Daniel on June 22, 2012

With the band currently working on some new songs, as well as getting ready to head back on the road next week we decided to take some time, and compile a list of the top 10 reasons to love The Head and The Heart.

10 reasons to love The Head and The Heart

10) The group formed in Seattle. Seattle has a history of churning out great music, and we are still not sure why.

9) Chris Zasche’s beard. While THATH’s bass stud was growing it out, ZZ Top was getting nervous and, we hear, started writing cease-and-desist letters.

8) They’re not afraid to try out new songs in a live setting. We, the fans, kinda feel like we get to be a part of the song-creation process. Takes courage on the band’s part. And we appreciate it.

7) Charity. She’s hot, has an awesome sense of style, and a badass voice.

6) They tour. A lot. Upside = you can see them perform live more than once a year. Downside = not a ton of time for them to work on new music.

5) The harmonies – simply gorgeous.

4) They worked their asses off to get to where they are today.

3) How the band was formed – It all came together in a meant-to-be kind of way that is somewhat freakishly awesome.

2) Not only do they make incredible music, but they happen to be great people as well.

And finally:

1) They make music that they give a shit about. They care about what they play. Sometimes you will see a live performance and know that the musicians are just going through the motions, but with
The Head and The Heart, it’s not that way at all. They get up there and, as a cohesive unit of musicians, give it all they’ve got, at every single show they play.

Additional news stuff:

The Band heads back on the road next week to play it’s two remaining opening gigs for the Dave Matthews Band. The first, on Wednesday June 27th in (lovely) Camden, New Jersey, and the second on Friday, June 29th in Hershey, Pennsylvania, after playing a sold out show Thursday night at the 9:30 club in Washington D.C..

It was also announced today that the band will be making their way back to Austin to play Fun Fun Fun Fest which takes place Nov. 2-4.

Barack Obama

I can't wait to hear The Head and The Heart.

It has come to our attention that The Head and The Heart may be playing a fundraiser for President Obama this coming Friday, February 17th, in Bellevue, Washington. According to an article on NWProgressive.org Invitations to an event, to be held at the Bellevue Westin, were sent out on the first of this month with the following information:

“The Details:

Please join President Obama at a Lunch with supporters like you in Bellevue.

What:
Obama Victory Fund 2012 – Lunch with President Obama & Special Performance by
the Head and the Heart

Where:
Bellevue Westin
600 Bellevue Way NE
Bellevue, Washington

When:
Friday, February 17, 2012
12:30 PM

Space is Limited

The minimum required to get in the door is $1,000. For just $4,000 more, you can have your picture taken with the President at a photo reception. For a grand total of $6,000, you can get into the photo reception with a friend.

Or, for $10,000, you can buy up a table at the event.
There is a special $250 rate for Young Democrats, but even that reduced rate may be beyond the means of those it is intended to benefit.”

We have not yet confirmed this with the band, although it does seem like it is entirely possible. To all of you in the Bellevue area we wish you the best of luck dealing with the traffic on Friday.

Update 2:31 P.M. EST
The band has confirmed that this will be happening, and they get to meet him as well!
