Givers to Receive Crossfade Miami's Coveted Makeshift Award at Bardot on January 19
Fret not. On Thursday, January 19, when Givers plays Bardot's Living Room Sessions concert series, Crossfade will attempt to present the quintet with a makeshift award commemorating its buzz-worthy achievements .
But what do you give a Giver? Here a few things we have in mind.
Arguably the most versatile instrument on the planet, the washboard doesn't only make for great zydeco indie-pop. It's also a portable laundry room. Hurray for cleanliness and Creole rhythm!
Band-Aid Adhesive Bandages
Be it on guitar strings, drumsticks, washboards, whatever -- musicians are always injuring their fingers. And with Givers penchant for superenergetic shows and constant flip-flopping of instruments, the road can be a very dangerous place. Surely, they'd appreciate a big box of Johnson & Johnson.
Givers already blends elements of African percussion. Why not blend elements of African garb?
Creole food can be a little spicy, even for a band from Louisiana. And nothing's worse than heartburn.
Givers are only going to go "Up Up Up" in 2012.
