Simple but Sophisticated

Let’s start the story of Joyce Manor’s “Million Dollars To Kill Me” at the end of Million Dollars To Kill Me—at the last not-even two minutes of “Wildflowers,” a song about light and beauty and wonder that ends the record like a sunrise after a long exhausting night. It’s not a sing-along single or a bleaked-out slow-burner. It’s brief, understated, and simple but sophisticated as it says what it needs to say in seven sharp lines. And it ends the album with a question instead of an answer because, on an album like this, questions are more honest. If 2016’s Cody was about growing up, then Kill Me is about what happens next—the reckonings with love, money, doubt and confusion, and the hope that persists despite it all. That’s where “Wildflowers” comes in.

    Great Night of Music

    Went to this show primarily to see Drab Majesty who were great. Also enjoyed a few of the other acts I wasn’t familiar with like French Vanilla and Ceremony. Lots of variety throughout the show. Wish the sets were longer, but understand given the number of acts involved.
