So my buddies in Mariage Blanc are having a CD release bash next week (BTW-I have heard the album and it’s so good!). Playing their first ever gig as support is a brand spankin’ new band called, appropriately enough, New Shouts. They have a retro sound that should be blasting out of an AM radio circa 1974 and believe me that’s a great thing. This will be one sweet show. Vocalists Cor and Derek were cool enough to participate in this, another duo edition of First/Last Friday.

Thank guys. I can’t get that image out of my head of Damon Albarn running for his life in the Strip District from some crazed 15 year old. Awesome! Good luck on the gig.
