The Happy Hollows 8/18/11 - The Echo, Los Angeles, CA.

About a week-and-a-half ago, The Happy Hollows played their first full length show in what seems like awhile (not counting the Sarah and Charlie duo mini-set at The Movies tribute show in June) at The Echo in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. It's been quite awhile also for us since we last covered The Happy Hollows (last year at the Hammer Museum, along with a few other times)This show was notable for a couple of reasons - it was the debut of their new drummer Richy (since Chris exited the band awhile back), and the unveiling of new material in the form of several songs incorporated with older ones.

Last month, Seasons shared the bill with Wet & Reckless, Manhattan Murder Mystery, and Wreck Of the Zephyr at The Satellite in Los Angeles. We of course are long-time fans of Seasons, having covered their shows many times before. This evening's show was a fun one, spanning material old and new.

Note: the title of track 3 is a best guess.

The Henry Clay People 7/28/11 - Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA.

Last month, The Henry Clay People (no affiliation with the 19th century politician who was a member of the Whig party) helped close out this year's "Also I Like To Rock" summer series at the Hammer Museum in the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles (doors down from the famed UCLA campus) What may come as a surprise to many denizens of the Los Angeles music scene, is that the author of this post has never seen The Henry Clay People in person. Sure, I had heard and read about them, heard their recorded material, heard it covered by other bands - but never quite had an opportunity to catch a show of theirs until recently. The Henry Clay People have been a staple on the local scene for quite some time, earning many accolades and followers.

This evening's show was a spirited gathering, with a set comprised of some old favorites and the preview of some new material. A clever tease of "Freebird" was performed by their keyboardist Jordan. Fun show and a good introduction to those unfamiliar with the band.

Note: Several new songs were played at this show, but as the writing of this post, I have not received any titles to identify them.

Gallery of photos from the show can be found here.
