San Diego band performs 'Buddy Holly, We Hardly Knew Ye'

The Short Eyes aren't a band anymore, but that doesn't mean we can't preserve their memory by taking a trip to the ol' Trolley Show archives. It's a bittersweet reminder that musicians in any local scene burn bright and fast. 

In this episode of A Trolley Show, the San Diego band performs "Buddy Holly, We Hardly Knew Ye," a spirited tune that feels like an ode to the iconic rocker in its title. The singer's barking and harmonica solo dirty up the performance in a way that feels ‘50s-era classic, when rock 'n' roll was dangerous.
