I finally had the opportunity to check out a Head For West Records showcase. They have been holding the monthly events at Live On Elgin for a few months now. This was their 10th edition. Lucky for me I was able to catch a couple of local acts – Lost Acres and Arms of the Girl.

Both bands put on entertaining performances featuring original tunes with a cover thrown in towards the end of their set. It was my first time seeing each of the bands live. Arms of the Girl has been active in the local scene for a number of years now, while Lost Acres appeared on the scene late last year. With slightly different styles, a little more indie for Lost Acres vs Arms of the Girl’s more blues based rock, the two bands definitely made for a fun evening of local music.

If you are unfamiliar with either of these bands, check them out if you’re looking for some great local music!
