News from the ‘ole inbox:
“EELS officially announce their 2006 NO STRINGS ATTACHED Tour with many new dates, starting with their traditional tour warm-up shows at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, May 25th & 26th, then winding through the west, midwest and northeast of the United States and Canada on their way to rock Europe for festival shows and more.”

Free summertime show in New York City at the World Financial Plaza on June 13! You lucky ducks.

Cuddling in bed with E is probably optional.

Here are two live Eels tracks, to get you in the mood. These are from the excellent KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic session last May:

Grace Kelly Blues (live) – Eels

Girl From the North Country (live, Dylan cover) – Eels

And one more, a bit more upbeat, from another session at KCRW:

Packing Blankets (live) – Eels

Oh and remember, as Steve Perry says (somewhat inexplicably), “E is real Ball-z.”

  • I live a 10-minute walk from the Somerville Theater, so I think I have the authority to tell you that it’s spelled with one “M.” And it’s in Somerville, not Boston!

  • Dan,
    Why thank you kind sir. Cut and paste from the email, but I fixed it now. Just like how when I lived in CA there was Shoreline Amphitheatre, which was in Mountain View, CA, about 20-30 minutes south of San Francisco. But without fail, the artists on stage would always yell, “Hello San Franciscoooooo!!!”

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
