AT THE ROCKandROLL CLUB....
Angels, Grimis, Tigers and Monkies, Suzan Hartuk – Cake Shop
You know Chris
Leo as the sprechstimme-ing angular guitar-slinging
leader of the Van Pelt or The Lapse. Or as the author of White
Pigeons or, more recently, 57 Octaves Below the Middle C Buzzed
by the Bee (or Really) How I Lost This Place (along
Hall)? Or as a bar DJ? Or as your local tour guide?
Or as a raw food chef? Or maybe as the brother of Pharmacist Ted?
Even if you don’t recognize the laziest man in showbiz from
any of these guises, all you need to know tonight is that Chris
Leo, who’s had a project called Vague
Angels for the last couple of years, will be performing
an intimate set of the band’s material all by his lonesome
in the comfortable subterranean confines of Cake
Shop, which by the way, finally got its liquor license.
Chris will be in Europe for the next few months so, if you’ve
been intending to check out this man-about-town's songs, this is
one of your last chances to lose yourself in his winding narratives
before he becomes a man-out-of-town.
And get their early to
check out Shonali Bhowmik of Ultrababyfat fame's band Tigers
