Last Night: Cloud Nothings At Fitzgerald's

Cloud Nothings, A Classic Education, The Boxing Lesson Fitzgeralds February 23, 2012

It's only February and 2012 is shaping up to be a big year for Cleveland's Cloud Nothings. Their new album Attack on Memory is garnering raves from critics and fans alike, having been the first release of the year to earn Pitchfork's Best New Music nod.

And Thursday night at Fitzgerald's, it was definitely in the air that to see Cloud Nothings was to be part of something.

I was accompanied by a bandmate who had only heard "Wasted Days" on Sirius/XM at work, and I did my best to hype them up. But before seeing them live (having unfortunately missed them when they were in Houston previously), I may as well have been talking about a different band.
