I first wrote about Costa Mesa's The New Limb back in February, with this little bit in Locals Only. We were all so young back then. Little did any of us know then that less than four months later, they would be playing the June residency at Detroit Bar?

Well, it's science fact, as they're playing every Monday in June, along with OC singer-songwriter Stacy Clark.
Things start in earnest tonight with LA solo artist Lex Land--recently featured on One Tree Hill, apparently the place to be for promising southern California artists--opening. The New Limb follow, and they've promised plenty of treats (somewhat literally, as an email from them promised "home-baked cookies") all month-long.
They've apparently constructed a bit of a stage artifice, which is intriguing, since no band I've seen, national or local, has ever even tried to alter the typical Detroit set-up, other than lights and projections. So that's cool. Also, strapping young lad Kyle Deven of Anaheim's We Are The Pilots will be joining them on bass for a tune.
Stacy Clark, to be featured in the pages of OC Weekly soon (honest!) closes out the night. And it's free! And they're doing it all month! How delightful.
