Small World - Jonny Lives!

So today I'm standing on 14th street and this dude comes up to me and sticks out his hand for me to shake. I kinda give him the "what the fuck" look and he says "FSU - freshman year". As soon as he said that I knew exactly who it was, my old friend Jonny!

Way back in '99 - '00, during my freshman year of college at Florida State he was a pretty good friend of mine. He was one of the few people I hung out with there that wasn't from Jersey or NY (he was from Florida). I left after my freshman year and dropped him a few emails during the next year but completely lost touch with him after that.

So anyway we start bullshittin' and apparently he moved to Brooklyn not too long ago and lives pretty close to where I do. He's also cool with some of the peeps with MyOpenBar, which I've contributed to a couple times (literally). It's crazy that shit worked out like that.

So you're probably saying "why the fuck do we care about this shit?". The answer is because he is in a band you might like, in fact they played Fat Baby tonight to a packed house. The band he is in is Ivy League, you may have heard of them.

Honestly, it's too mellow for my tastes but it's damn good for what it is. If you're into the whole Belle & Sebastian and Iron & Wine thing you'll love them. I know what you're saying "aren't there only two dudes in that band?". Well... sorta, they play half their set singer-songwriter duo and the other half full band - with Jonny on drums.

Ivy League
