"...the combination of traditional blues with a contemporary sound that makes THP unique"

This is pretty funny.  We like to change things up a bit though: not so much complaining, and sub in "harmonica" for "more guitar."  What can we say, we try to think outside the box.

From here.

Beth Hart

It seems we made a new fan at Mercury Lounge!

Ok, first off: we had a collective total music geek moment about this.  I mean, Beth Hart is phenomenal, one of the pillars holding up the modern blues scene.

After breathing for a sec', Marlon had a little etymological rumination.  'Hurt' and 'hart' both come from the same root in English, specifically from England, both meaning 'deer.'  ('Hart' is the purer form, where 'hurt' is the variation.)  So, this awesome, serendipitous connection may be simply a re-meeting of two branches of a very old family tree!  How cool would that be?  Probably almost as cool as Beth Hart herself.  Probably.

Once again, Twitter proves its worth.

Also, we have the jpeg to prove it.
