THIS week go and see amanaboutadog.
With luscious vocals and idiosyncratic live performances that will resonate your ear drums, amanaboutadog need to be heard. This week you've got the chance to do just that.
Making their debut with a new line up, they are taking part in the Wide Awake Club at Shorty's Sports Bar, Hitchin, tomorrow (Friday), where they will be playing alongside the equally adept Ardent Kicks (www.ardentkicks.co.uk).
amanaboutadog will be performing an off-the-wall show, including vocals from the succulent Claire, live guitar from Ben (raised by wolves in the jungles of Panama if you believe their website), live VJing from video jock Jona and recorded drums courtesy of Joe.
The crazily creative Claire said: "We got Joe to record his drums for when he isn't there. To replace or exceed the energy we'd lose by not having a live drummer we started looking for someone to put a film behind us."
Using Jona as a video jock adds a strong visual dimension to the band and creates an extra dimension to their performances, bringing to life the imagery of their songs.
"We're so excited to see the reaction, not just to our music but to all the footage we've been preparing for the Shorty's gig. A highlight was torching hamburgers in a backstreet in Bethnal Green for American Towns (don't try this at home). Then we'll see everyone down the front for Ardent Kicks," she added.
The band offers a varied set and distinctive performance and although they are currently unsigned they are definitely one to keep an eye on.
