Put on your dancing shoes…this will be one fun show!
It kicks off with the debut of Andrew Ennals & His Checkered Past, the new band from the Beth In Battle Mode keyboard wiz who's joined by Denis Woods (The Dress Whites), Michael "Mez" Dilauro (Shoot The Image) and Tyler Drygas (Escalate!) to deliver a fun, energetic set reminiscent of Carole King playing with a classic soul group. There'll even be a horn section on a few songs - get there early, you won't want to miss this!
Then, stick around for BEAMS, a local 7-piece that's been filling venues with their folk sound that's at turns joyous and sinister. Their latest album is Just Rivers (produced by Cowboy Junkies producer Peter J. Moore) received 4 Ns and they've recently put out this video with Exclaim! for their new song "The Way We Run": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NKBeYrKtvg
Finally, the evening closes with the stripped-down three-piece rock of Rival Boys. A brother-and-sister combo backed by an unrelated-but-propulsive drummer, they deliver heavy riffs without sacrificing melodic vocals. Want proof? Check out the video for "Sober & Single": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euLI7hosYuI
So stick around all night! You'll have a great time, plus we can always use more people to drink with. Cover $6.
