NEW FIND: THE HENRY CLAY PEOPLE
Since this CD landed in my mailbox, Blacklist The Kid With The Red Moustache by THE HENRY CLAY PEOPLE has owned me. It reminds me of the cleverness of bands like PAVEMENT or ILLINOIS, and the fun of say a MODEST MOUSE. Tracks like "Elly Vs The Eczema Princess" and "The Gentle Charm Of The Soviette" had me early on. The band is from Los Angeles, and at the moment are unsigned. So, if you live in the LA area, they happen to have some shows coming up TONIGHT as well as a few more times by next week.
TONIGHT: @ MR T'S in Highland Park
April 29 @ The Verity Room in Canoga Park
May 1 @ The Echo in Echo Park
