Sunparlour Players @ the London Music Club
I first came across the The Sunparlour Players last winter when they opened for Cuff the Duke at the 'The Legendary' Horseshoe Tavern. After a few minutes of wandering around, in an otherwise loud bar, they really grabbed my attention, I bought their album, and have seen them a couple of times since. The Players are going to be at the London Music Club this Wednesday (tomorrow), with two acts that I haven't heard much (or anything) about, Donnie Ivey (a name that makes me think he should be a member of the rat pack) and The Floating Abagails.
I haven't been real excited about many shows this fall, the only shows I can think of have been Chad Van Gaalen, the Besnard Lakes, Hayden and Dragonette/The Most Serene Republic - the others I've been to have been a fun thing to do on a night with not much going on. If you can see where I'm going with this one.... I'm pretty excited to see the Players who always put on an intense, energetic show that really outdoes their album Hymns for the Happy which has just been re-released.
Recommended tracks: 'Pacifists Anthem', 'If the Creeks Don't Rise', 'Hymns for the Happy'
Oh, I needed to say this: At the gym today I caught about 10 minutes of the Heat/Bobcats - watched Shaq run down the court, and it reminded me of Charles Barkley. Ouch.
