I completely spaced the Grammys telecast this year. As such, I overcompensated when the Academy Awards followed up two weeks later, Sunday, Feb. 26, the same night the Good Music Club filmed four local acts worthy of more attention. The Oscars were a snooze, so now I'm bitter I missed the second TGMC showcase. Here are highlights from the four bands taped.
The Calm Blue Sea: “We Will Never Be As Young As We Are Tonight”
The Blind Pets: “Sweet Tooth”
Hello Wheels: “Rappahannock River”
Guns of Navarone: “You Used to Be”
