TONIGHT: Eugene and the 1914 at The Prospector
A lot of exciting developments are happening in the world of Long Beach folk rockers of Eugene and the 1914. Aside from the fact that you'll see their names in print very shortly, in a music feature penned by yours truly, they've also been invited to record some tracks at the historic Westlake Studios in Santa Monica, where anyone who is anyone in the music business has recorded...seriously, check out their credits.
Either way, it's all well and good except for one thing: their show tonight at The Prospector is going to be their one around here for a little while, as front man Eugene Owens and drummer JP Bendzinsky travel to New York at the end of the week for a brief outing with the Rosewood Thieves, joing up again w/ the 1914 for a show in Seattle. Though tonight may be bittersweet, Eugene fans should definitely come out of the wood work as Owens and his band, including Bendzinsky, guitarist Michael J. Salter, bassist Timmy Samorile and keyboardist Alfred Hernandez take to Long Beach's best cramped bar stage armed with their infections hybrid of pop, folk and inventive indie hooks.
They're also playing tonight with fellow female folksters Red Sweater and the Seattle shoegazers of Levator. Oh, are you a new or soon to be fan of the 1914? Wanna see what they're all about? Follow me....
