Kurt Baker "GOT IT COVERED" Release Party! with Mink Wilde and the Gentlemen Callers, The Dopamines
Friday 08.13.2010, Doors at 8:30 PM, Starts at 9:00 PM, $6, 18+
Kurt Baker has traveled the world touring with his group The Leftovers, worked with many new local groups such as The Goodnight Process and the Desires, and now has ventured onto the path of solo artist. His first solo release "Got It Covered" on Oglio Records is an electrifying 7 song EP paying tribute to his favorite New Wave and Power Pop artists of the 70s and 80s. Baker has assembled an all star cast as his backing band and will be playing many of the songs off his new record, Leftovers classics and new originals. Along with the release of "Got It Covered", a brand new 7 inch single of his covers of Blondie's "Hanging On the Telephone" and Elvis Costello's "Pump It Up" will be on sale for the first time at the show. Joining Kurt will be Portland's Mink Wilde and the Gentlemen Callers, a sleaze-glam rock n' roll band not to miss, Ohio's most drunken party animals The Dopamines play along with Grabass Charlestons, a swaggery indie punk group in the realm of Hot Water Music, Jawbreaker and the Lawrence Arms. And just to keep things extra wild, throughout the night classic 80's slasher movies will be shown (it's Friday the 13th)!
