A Dinner Party with Daisy the Great
Join The Wild Honey Pie community for a dinner party at Le Fanfare with indie darlings Daisy the Great on April 17. Enjoy three courses of mouthwatering Italian food and a stripped down performance by one of the most charming duos in our city. Instead of our typical offering of complimentary beer, we are partnering with Noble Oak double barrel bourbon, an award-winning bourbon with a noble heart, to give you an unrivaled tasting experience in the form of free cocktails. Noble Oak is bourbon with body, deep color and richness of flavor that will taste wonderful with your hearty meal. Their bourbon also comes with a purpose: every bottle of double barrel bourbon purchased plants a tree. Follow them at @nobleoakspirits to learn how this bourbon is #stronglyrooted, and then join us at Le Fanfare and taste it for yourself. #nobleoak
Daisy the Great recently released a their debut album, I’m Not Getting Any Taller, which is a rumination on time: what to do with it, where to spend it and who to spend it with. Frontwomen and founders Mina Walker and Kelley Nicole Dugan address these questions through playful lyrics and dreamy hooks. Their iconic harmonies are sweeter and sassier than ever before on tracks that span from soft, swooning indie to up-tempo art pop. Lines like “Always animosity / When I ask you to kiss me / I don't know why kissed you in the first place” showcase their impressive level of self-awareness in lyric writing. Daisy the Great has a perceptive voice that is distinctly millennial and makes for a captivating and fun live performance. You can taste their music here.
“The band itself is cautiously straddling the line between humility and pride: Even the name is ironic. Daisies are "vulnerable," Dugan points out, while greatness is not. Their music often begins tentative, building into something more aggressive. They're joining a larger chorus of female pop musicians that are leaning into anarchy and melancholia.” — Refinery29
“An inviting blend of folk, baroque pop, and indie rock, linked by Daisy’s theatricality, unique imagery, and ability to tell stories.” — Nylon
“They sing about messing up while dying your hair, having a garage sale at a childhood home, and “validationships.” With lines like “I don’t really love you, I just said that for a change of pace” there’s something straddling the line between earnestness and humor, sentiment and specificity in every Daisy the Great lyric.” — Medium
