The Patinettes are a band based in Zaragoza, Spain (I don’t even know where that is, to be honest) that plays a mix of country, folk, rock, bluegrass, and even a little bit of surf thrown in for good measure. The result is a fun album – called Bliss – with a little bit for everyone. I think the track that won me over was the second one – “The Man With the Electric Flag”.
There’s not too much else information about them online, but if I’ve missed anything, please point it in my direction!
Now, the reason why I was looking for a band of this type: coming up tomorrow night (Friday, June 10th) is another show by Capital Grass and the No Men! This time they are playing at Zaphod Beeblebrox with Mark Martrye & Justice R.F.
Their music is similar (but a little different) than The Patinettes, and they put on a pretty good live show. Check them out if you’re in the Ottawa area!
