Lesa Bezo and Henning Ohlenbusch visited WXOJ’s Nine Volt Heart program to talk about their band, The Fawns, and their upcoming appearance at Northampton’s STRONG and Pleasant Music Festival on Friday 6/7 at Progression Brewing Company.
We talked about their latest release, “Goodnight, Space Girl” as well as a recent tribute album that local musicians put together called “Friends; A Celebration of the Songs of Lesa Bezo”. The Fawns have played every conceivable venue in the area but this will be the first time at Northampton’s newest brewery, Progression Brewery, across from the Pearl Street Ballroom.
Amid our conversation, we include three songs from their “Space Girl” release as well as two from the tribute CD. Included are “High School Party”, “Smoking Lounge” and the title cut. We also include the cuts “Friends” and “David is a Guy” by GoldWaterII and The Young At Heart Chorus. Give it a listen, but better yet; check out their local shows each Friday in June starting with 6/7 at Progression Brewery; 6/14 Taste of Amherst; 6/21 at Luthiers Coop in Easthampton.
