See The Spectacles play live!
Now's your chance to see The Spectacles and hear for yourself why these indie rock heroes are the talk of LA's underground music scene.
All summer, they've been huddled away recording a new album that's taking their signature sound into Brianwilsonesque levels of majesty in what we've called "the definitive rock music statement on LA's summer of 2007."
But Thursday night, they'll be in Hollywood, exposed to nightlight if not daylight when they perform at the legendary Molly Malone's Irish Pub on Fairfax. Molly Malone's is world-famous as a showcase for future stars including Lenny Kravitz, Joan Osborne, Michelle Shocked, Weezer & Flogging Molly.
And the joint is just a block or so away from CBS Television City on Fairfax & Beverly, where Craig Ferguson records his Late Late Show. The Scot's talent bookers could do worse than to get The Spectacles on the show before they break big and hop straight to Jay Leno.
That's Thursday, August 23rd. 8:30 pm. Molly Malone's.
575 S. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles. Details at 323.935.1577.
And expect a celeb or two among the crowd.
Keifer Sutherland is an early fan (seen left, at a Spectacles show). "We even gave him our first CD, Hey, Ice Cream, which he left in the bar, but then made a special trip back to get, and then thanked us emphatically," bass player Travis Fields tells us. "Also, (lead singer) Brent (Crowe) and I once picked up Alice N Chains star Jerry Cantrell on the side of Laurel Canyon one night after a Spectacles performance.
"I don't know how that ties in to anything, but I thought I'd mention it."
