The Haphazards by name & by nature!

Originally starting life as the Dawson’s Music Family Band, showcasing guitars and amps by playing every type of style known to man, the Haphazards decided to branch out and do it for their own sick enjoyment.

Due to reasons ranging from health issues, abductions & arrest warrants – there have been a few line-up changes since the last public appearance –  though the same dizzying selection of  blues/soul/funk/ska will be on offer.

Catch them now, before they’re banned from public places.

Crackling Vinyl W/Kenny young and the eggplants [+]

(Brooklyn, New York)

Free entry.

19780_281448502099_7465684_n

Claiming to be from Brooklyn (but possibly from some other galaxy altogether), Kenny Young and the Eggplants are a not-easily-described semi-acoustic trio who perform songs about giant squirrels, scary bits of cheese, inebriated crime-solving birds, and malevolent washing machines, among other important rock and roll topics. Various attempts to define their music have been made, but perhaps the most entertaining quote comes from the New York Times, which said that the band gives “eloquent voice to the multifaceted neuroses of prolonged adolescence.” In the U.K., the Sunday Herald said the Eggplants “mix the wit of Jonathan Richman with the sound of the Nico-era Velvets to create a surreal and satirical gumbo.” They have also been called a “deeply eccentric pop band” (The Guardian), and a “wonderful weird band” (The Scotsman). The Village Voice said, “The naivete Kenny wears on his sleeve is genuine – think of an East Village Brian Wilson, without the money but still tilted in his own wacked-out way.”
