Columbians enjoyed some chamber indie/folk Saturday night at the Underground Cafe’.

 

You & Yourn, made up of husband-wife duo Heather and Nic Dillon, soothed the coffeeshop’s guests with their roadside-themed songs and speculative musings about life and love for the Bluebird Festival.

From Urbana, Illiois, the Dillon pair have actually traveled and toured throughout Canada and all actoss the United States. For a time, they were part of a band called “Winter”, which–ironically enough–toured throughout Alaska.

Weatherwise, Nic Dillon pronounced his preference for Missouri and Illinois seasons. After spending some time touring throughout the dryer regions to the Southwest, Nic said “It’s great to be back in the Midwest. In Arizona, it’s 60 degrees at night and I feel like I’m choking.”

Locals seemed to be glad these two subtle, yet gifted artists were here as well.

In the dim-light, cozy cafe, both guests and artists had conversations about Urbana-Champaign, the confusion of scalping football tickets, the confusion over football in general and the pleasures of being smack dab in the middle of the country.
