Pony Bones

Pompeii Graffiti tugs at your "Heartstrings" on Valentine's Day single.

You know when you're at a house-show in DC, for a "DIT" festival, and you run into that special someone? That someone who plays some sort of custom-looking 6-string with flatwounds as a bass (when he's not on the pedal steel) in a band with a killer cellist? It's one of those "at first sight" things you hear about from the motion pictures. 

Ahren Buchheister isn't the only member of Pompeii Graffiti, Pony Bones (the band I saw at The Paperhaus on that glorious day), or Black Rhinoceros, but he's the common factor that binds this Annapolis supergroup, like (dare I say it?) heartstrings, together in this lovely video. Ahren himself is on lead vox and guitar. Fret not, Ahren, I dig you "not only for your music skills."

But they are, like, a huge deal. Happy Valentine's Deli readers! --Natan Press
