Del-Lords Do Surprise Show Tonight

 

Make that, the
quintessential American bar band…

The legendary Del-Lords will be playing a surprise show at
the Lakeside Lounge (162 Ave B, in NYC) tonight, Aug.
30, under the name “Elvis Club”. The show will be a warm-up for their
Turbo-Rock Festival gig in Spain
this weekend.

It’s a rare US
performance for the band, who formed in ’82 and lasted for about a decade for
splitting up and going on to their own projects. But then, out of the blue, Eric “Roscoe” Ambel, Scott Kempner, and Frank Funaro
reunited last year to record and release a limited edition ep, Under
Construction
, which was produced by Ambel.

They will be in the studio next week finishing up recording
their first full-length in two decades. As pretty much any fan can tell you,
the Lords were – and still are – one of the greatest American groups, period,
classy avatars of roots music and proto-Americana. Most of their albums have
been reissued over the years, and the 1999 compilation Get Tough remains essential listening for mix tape fiends and iPod
hounds alike.
