Three and a half weeks ago, we
mentioned that Long Beach avant rockers Free Moral Agents
Ikey Ownes of the Mars Volta) are going out on the road
El Paso band Zechs Marquise. We all found that they hadn't booked any hometown
show dates yet. Excuse our tardiness, but it appears that the band has added a
show at their neighborhood stomping grounds at the Prospector. And as the title
of this blog suggests, you don't have much time to make up your mind about
whether or not you're gonna go see them. Tonight they share the stage
with Eugene and the 1914
includes Owens' brother Eugene) along with DJ So Stupid. Things are about
to get spicy for the band as they head to the south west.
Guitarist Jesse Carzello left us a comment update over Halloween alerting everyone to tonights show, but by then that post was a solid six feet under. However the rattling jaunts of jam band fury from Owens' ensemble of musicians (featuring vocalist Mendee Ichikawa, bassist Dennis Owens, drummer Ryan Reiff, keyboardist Reid Kinnet and Carzello on guitar) are still very much alive. This is probably the last time you'll be able to catch them this month as the band heads out spread their sound to Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Nebraska, Colorado and New Mexico. Here's hoping they find some love out there in the Bible belt.
Tonight's show starts at 10 p.m. and the cover is $5.
