“the honey badgers!”

We made it! delfolk.org updated yesterday and listed The Honey Badgers as winners of the first round of Delmarva Folk Festival’s “Folk Hero” contest. Our friends Salvage Kin also made it (they just finally picked a name, so you should “like” them asap ^_^). This means that we get to perform at the Delmarva Folk Festival Friday, October 7th. We will be competing with five other groups for the winning prize of a Saturday festival performance spot as well as cash and recording and photography time. So…come out and see us again then. Video and audio recordings from the coffeehouse are above. Everyone loved the banana bread and it all got eaten ^_^

me and Erin yay
me and Erin yay

Oh, how did we come up with the name? First, who is “us?” I asked my friend Erin to play violin for some Battleshy Youths songs to make them folksier to hopefully try to win the coffeehouse (success) and then I remembered she could sing so…that’s us. Me and Erin. We walked in Saturday night and I signed us up and I said “what should we call ourselves?” Of course Erin is a Youtube enthusiast and responded with “The Honey Badgers” without even hesitating…so that’s what I wrote ^_^ Someone called it bittersweet. My mother called it stupid. She doesn’t like any of my band names. “Battleshy Youths makes you sound like wimps.” But she likes the music and comes to shows (:

Anyway, “The Honey Badgers” is just the duet form of Battleshy Youths. “Michael Natrin” is just the solo form of Battleshy Youths. “Battleshy Youths” is just the full band version of Battleshy Youths. And that’s about it. I think Cara Watson and Danny Hill might be tied for BSY show attendance, which is actually impressive since Danny is a member and Cara is not a member…she is the #1 superfan.

Also, I am pretty sure that Kool-Aid has the greatest recipe ever…”add a cup of sugar, more or less to taste” teehee #sugarrush

Battleshy Youths updates: we have an exciting show planned for this Saturday night at the Wilmington Film Co-op at 2nd and Loma at 6pm. $6 gets you in to see us and The Paper Janes rock out (: We need people to show up, so you should come!

  1. I opened this page and saw my name multiple times in the tag and was very confused. lol. i still am confused but then again that’s what happens when michael drinks the kool-aid.

    but yay congrats!

  2. also for the record, moon river is one of my most favorite songs of all time. next to taylor the latte boy and songs that make me cry and BSY songs.

  3. hehe. i like the line about your mum not liking your band names but still coming to shows. i think sometimes my parents don’t like my bands, but they still come to shows.
    the explanation of battleshy youths being battleshy yhouths was beautiful. (but, i think it needs updated after saturday’s show, which was “battleshy youths,” but was only three of you gun-hating boys.)

  4. your shows are in your basement so they can’t really escape (; addendum – “Battleshy Youths featuring Eric and Andrew” is the three piece form of gun-hating young men ^_^
