Like my last Geraniums review, this review's purpose isn't to tell you what The Geraniums sound like. That's all in my first review from 2004. This review is to tell you that The Geraniums are still playing monthly at the Circle Bar and that you're missing out.
Of course, it's your prerogative to dislike The Geraniums, but I don't understand how you could, and to be honest, I'm a little pissed no one shows up at their shows. There isn't another rock band in New Orleans that can be vulnerable while being defiant. No other band can do such a good job of almost exploding or imploding without doing either--bubbles of anxiety and frustration never pop at the surface.
The Geraniums make sadness beautiful, and that at the very least deserves your attention. Kudos to Alex McMurray for offering his color and lead guitar talents to a gig that offers him chump change.
