The gents of Sam Champion are not content to simply sew the oats of rock upon a long sold-out Mercury Lounge tonight and never look back. They're just far too classy for that. Instead, they're making like the carnies at the Coney Island Cyclone and taking a little snapshot of the occasion...though it should here be made explicit that instead of an embarrassing pic of them shrieking on a rollercoaster we're referring to the recording of a LIVE ALBUM to immortalize every second of tonight's rocking goodness!
So, if you find yourself unable to score a ticket tonight, fear not: Sam Champion's got you covered, and in more ways than one. They've also released another exclusive track - the freewheeling "Uncle Drums" - on RCRD LBL last month and are set to drop "Be Mine Everyone", the first single from their long-awaited sophomore album Heavenly Bender (out July on North Street Records), next Thursday, May 1st. Your party may have been yesterday but the real jam starts tonight...
Listen: "Your Party Was Yesterday?"
