The Gourds Discovery Green June 14, 2012
I have lost count of how many Gourds shows I have seen over the years. I doubt I have seen any other band live more times than this one. But I never realized how much children loved the Gourds until Thursday at Discovery Green.
Man, these kids loved the Gourds. There must have been dozens of the little munchkins out there, dancing, sitting on the stage drumming, jumping up and down, and running back and forth just because they could. Catch them in the wrong light, and the gnarly-looking group might actually frighten children, but the Gourds won a lot of new fans among the Thomas the Tank Engine crowd Thursday. (Is that show still on the air?)
