Who: Big Whup, performing at
the Prospector tonight (with Red Sweater and
California Condors, plus DJ sets by our writer and LA Record editor Chris Ziegler, Lithuanian Prince and Hits and Mrs.).
Why: Because Big Whup fuses folk-irony with Japanese-pop influences and is unabashedly all about embracing skillful eclecticism in their music. Details and my favorite song, after the jump.
For those of you who like: saw, guitar, viola, bass, organ,
drums, triola, tap shoes and banana
