Music Monday - The Swell Season

You might know them, you might not. They were the story behind the movie ONCE that came out of nowhere to steal away an OSCAR for best original song in 2008. Since then, they have toured the world playing to sold out stadiums and intimate back room stages and have amassed quite a following.

We were lucky enough to see them at McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica last week for a benefit show that sold out in 8 minutes. (literally) It was one of the best concerts we've ever been to. Raw, rich with talent and off the cuff, the duo played for over 2 hours and left to a standing ovation lasting well over 2 minutes.

If you don't know them, you need to.
