Tonight! Heavy Trash, Om, and Clem Snide Vie For Your Love
Heavy Trash, the garage-rockabilly duo of Matt Verta-Ray and the one, the only Jon Spencer, celebrate the release of their third record, Midnight Soul Serenade, at Bowery Electric tonight. As Verta-Ray explains in this weeks' Voice (drop by tonight), "Generally, rock 'n' roll guys are insecure and don't put on a lot of luster. Rarely do they say, 'I love you' and 'I'm here for you.' Jon and I have been around a long time, and we have those feelings. We wanted that to be represented." So sensitive.
On-again, off-again Nashville alt-country dudes Clem Snide are profoundly well named, but frontman Eef Barzelay's nasal cleverness is profoundly affecting in small doses. The Mercury Lounge oughta be small enough.
