we return to Echo Park Rising tomorrow, Saturday 8/19 -- 5pm at the ECHOPLEX. Plenty of fantastic bands playing all weekend... but here are a couple that have our full endorsement which you should give your time to: SATURDAY: The Pretty Flowers at Little Joy at 3pm. SUNDAY: Facial at Echoplex at 8:30pm.
5pm on Saturday 8/19 at The Echoplex / Echo Park Rising. Free. We LOVE this fantastic festival, so much so that despite not really being a normal functioning band anymore we decided to write some new tunes and play it again. MANY other great bands playing all weekend... go see Noah's band The Pretty Flowers at Little Joy at 3pm.
HCP Friendos -- Andy and Joey are in a brand new band with dudes from Piebald, Vanaprasta, and Summer Darling. The new band is called FAKERS. First show is this coming Monday night at The Satellite. FREE. 9 o'clock. More info on the FAKERS page. We'd love to see you there. https://www.facebook.com/fakersband
Alright friendos- I think we'd been waiting to have a final show that actually felt like a 'proper' final show, complete with all the confusing emotions and celebratory 'end of an era' weight. You guys and gals gave us that last night and much more. We will forever have that show tattooed into our brains and hearts. A life highlight. Thank you for all the support throughout the years. It's been an adventure, and last night is exactly how we wanted this adventure to end. We love you! Stay in touch. Love, The Henry Clay People
With the last HCP show coming up this Saturday, we're getting pretty nostalgic here... SO - for the next few days we'll post up a bunch of our favorite "band moments" which have found their way to the internet. This one is from our Jam In the Van session from summer 2011, drinking cheap beer in a piss covered alley in LA.
Hello friendos- The Henry Clays play August 17th at Echo Park Rising music fest. It's free. We'll be playing in the early evening... In the past, we have been sort of doomsdayish with our "this could be it for the band" insinuations. Yet here we are. This one may be different. This may actually be "it" for the following exciting reasons: Eric is now a proud papa bear and one test away from being a legit architect. Andy is going back to school. Joey is moving to the east coast to go back to school. Harris is currently touring the country/world with other rock and roll bands. Noah has a rad new band called The Pretty Flowers. If the August 17th show sucks, then we will probably have to do another to redeem ourselves, but it might not be until 2020: Thirty-Five for the Rest of Our Lives. It's been fun. We miss you. We miss playing. It's kinda sad and happy at same time. Let's make this one special. Love, The Henry Clay People
