Post #266: Weaver At The Loom

***Minneapolis artist currently doing a 
Kickstarter project.***

A few years ago, I had the opportunity of seeing Weaver at the Loom perform at the Fine Line in Downtown Minneapolis.

They were an opener, with a band playing between them and the 'headliner'.  Who was the headliner?  For the life of me I can't remember.

What I do remember about that night, was being really impressed by WATL, and spending some time talking to it's mastermind, Daniel Smith, and walking out with their 2007 album, I Was Searching and I Found.

A great album, but with only 5 songs, it left me wanting more.

Well 4 years later, in October of this year, they finally released a second album, Before Now, Was Then.

This is where you will find "We're Wild Animals (We Always Were)".

Like many unsigned and independent artists, Dan is finding alternate means of funding the costs associated with his passion.  Through Kickstarter, his fans are able to contribute any amount of $1, making the dream of a tour and new music a possibility.

After writing this, I'll be making my contribution.

After all, it is artists like Dan that fuel my passion for listening.

Please support this artist!!!
