Enthusiasm isn't one of our shortcomings, so we've been bummed more than once at a show when real were not recognizing real enough. Thankfully, that's never been a problem at Lavender Diamond's shows. In fact, the grumpiest of indie grampas have been reduced to near tears and exclamations of angels in America when under the spell of lead singer Becky Stark (glowing above). And every time we're like, "Welcome, brother. May I take your cardigan?" So tonight we will be mobbing deep at Safari Sam's in Hollywood, for Lavvy Di's last show in the States before they head off to the Old Country for more dates. For digital evidence of Stark's transcendant voice, go here and download the band's "You Broke My Heart" and "Rise In The Springtime" from their Cavalry Of Light EP, available January 30th at Matador Records.
