Oh My!:  Local House Show

***************************************************************************************************************************

I’ve had the pleasure lately of getting to know local musician and artist, Colin Mosely, aka “Colonel.”  Colin grew up in Tuscola, IL, and is now an undergraduate student studying art at UIUC.    Here are a few clips from the lovely house show I saw him play at last week.

Hope you enjoy his beautiful, crooning voice as much as I do!

Oh My!:  Rusalka Winter House Show

***************************************************************************************************************************

This is a show from earlier this year at The Dude Ranch in Urbana.  Rusalka is my brother’s most established band in the area. (Rusalka tumblr here, facebook here.)  They’ve been a bit inactive since the school year started, since they’re scattered across the midwest for college.  But rumor has it they’ll be doing a reunion show some time in the near future, so I’ll be sure to keep you posted.  Here are some pics for nostalgia’s sake.



Oh My!: HANK @Red Star

***************************************************************************************************************************

Faces: Daniel Lee, Darwin Keup, Nelson Cowan, and Teddy Lerch

Places:  Red Star Liquors, Urbana, IL

Oh My!:  New local band, H.A.N.K. (Hairy.Asian.Native-american.Kentucky.), representing the C-U Collective at Red star

***************************************************************************************************************************

Introducing…H.A.N.K!

HANK is not a person.  It’s a new local band that is a part of the C-U Collective, a local DIY music scene.  They can be best summed up as punky math-rock with lots of technical guitars and, if you can’t tell from the pictures, angry yelling.  HANK is made up of Daniel Lee (my studly brother) on guitar and vocal, Teddy Lerch on guitar and vocal, Darwin Keup on bass and vocal, and Nelson Cowan on drums.  

 

Hank and all their noodles and oodles will be opening this Thursday, Nov. 10th with Maps and Atlases at the Courtyard Cafe.  Click here for more information.  Hope to see you there!
