One night in the mid-1990s, I was at Bohager’s (yes I admit I was actually at Bohager’s) and heard this band playing U2’s New Year’s Day. The band was Baltimore-based Honor Among Thieves. I quickly become enamored with them. I went to their weekly Sunday night shows at The Horse You Came In On in Fells Point and their Wednesday night acoustic sets at Claddagh Pub in Caton. I became friendly with the band, especially the lead singer Mitch and guitarist Mark. Honor Among Thieves’ album Grow is simply beautiful. My favorites are Go Away and What a Mess. The band went on to become the nationally known SR-71, but they will always be Honor Among Thieves to me and represent one of the greatest periods of my life.
This blog post is part of my A to Z April Challenge about ‘My Music’ – music I love from A to Z. Thanks for stopping by. I am also blogging the A to Z Challenge on my other blog On the Road with U2 about ‘My U2′ – what I love about U2 from A to Z.
