PICTURE THIS: The Good Life + Big Harp @ The Echo, LA 8/7/14
It’s been four long years since The Good Life have paid a visit to Los Angeles. Without any announcement of a new album, these pop up shows were a nice surprise. The show was sold out and fans lined up two and half hours before doors opened to get a good spot in the tiny venue.
Opening the night was fellow Saddle Creek band, Big Harp. Debuting lots of new material, they got the crowd warmed up for the main act.
The Good Life opened with “Keely Aimee” a song off their last album, Help Wanted Nights. The old favorites kept on rolling. Half way through the set, frontman Tim Kasher announced that the band had been working on new material and hoped to release it next year. He kept referring to the songs as “the future hits” and then jokingly said they would be changing their name for the new album. “Don’t worry we already talked to the Google execs and when you type in The Good Life it’ll go directly to ‘the future hits’”. Kasher’s banter continued throughout the night and kept the audience laughing and in good spirits.
