The Audreys

We went out last night on a bit of a whim to see a band called "The Audreys." I heard them being interviewed on CBC radio, and thought they sounded fun, so we headed down to the Old Triangle to see them. Not that we need much of an excuse to head down to the Old Triangle, because they have a really good veggie burger. Yum.

Anyhow, the Audreys were really good. They have a kind of alt-country sound, but also a bit poppy, so they are fun to listen to. They even sang "Moon River" as a tribute to Audrey Hepburn. I love that song. Especially the bit where she says "my huckleberry friend." The first time I saw "Breakfast at Tiffany's" I actually hated it! I thought that the character of Holly Golightly, though charmingly named and beautifully dressed, was just far too annoying. But, now that I love the film, I see that is part of her charm. All this talk of Audreys is making me want to watch Amelie to see that other Audrey, Ms. Tatou. In conclusion, I'll just say that Audreys of all sorts are a good thing!

Totally agree! Although I have never heard of the band, but it sounds fun :-)

Audreys are great! most of them, at least. Sounds like you had a fun night.
