The MacIntyre-Dorrance legacy…

What are the odds that an Indie band would have two connections to the long-closed Villa?
From a note from ’68 graduate Steve MacIntyre to his colleagues…

… today, Cole, my stepson, called to tell me that he had news he guaranteed would be even more astonishing than the discovery of Fritz:   Cole plays in a band named Darwin Deez which is currently touring the U.S. and Canada.   There are four band members and Cole is the guitarist.    And who’s the bass player in the band?   Michelle Dorrance, Anson’s daughter.

These kids have been living out of a cramped bus for the last couple of weeks, and though I haven’t been tracking all their venues, they’ve performed in Boston, Providence, Toronto and Omaha, among other cities.   Tonight they play Seattle, tomorrow night San Francisco, Monday night Santa Fe and Tuesday Austin.

You can sample their music on the band’s myspace site.
