Elizabeth and The Catapult Take Over Summer

by Web Intern

One of my favorites is the snappy, infectious, ‘Momma’s Boy’: ‘If you want a girl to be your mother/Go find another, go find another one.’ Right on, Elizabeth! I also can’t get enough of ‘The Hang Up,’ a perfect confection of a summer break-up song. ‘Out with the girls on First Avenue/Drinking away our imaginary blues/I’d rather be anywhere, anyway, than to give up another day/Putting up with you.’ Check out their website for shows, news, and more. -Devan
