Saturday: Independents’ Day with Clay reunion

Clay: Guess the decade by the facial hair

Tomorrow marks the last of the late-summer music festivals, Independents’ Day, and it ain’t a bad way to end the season. You can check out the full lineup below. Everyone probably has a different must-see act, but as reunions go, Clay is the big name. I spoke to Jerry Dannemiller, who was responsible for booking Clay and about one-third of the ID lineup, and he had this to say about the band to put them in context:

“Clay held a special place in a certain period of time. A lot of people revered Clay. They were like a Midwestern Buzzcocks with a weird propensity for performance art. They were hilarious, extremely witty and really fun. They were one of the bands you didn’t want to miss when they played a show.”

Clay featured Guinea Worms’ Will Foster and put out a couple singles on Anyway Records. You can check out a whole bunch of the bands’ “shouttakes” as mp3s here, and Cringe also has a feature on the band along with mp3s of Clay’s unreleased album, Stories Of Kirk And His Fiat (And A Buffalo Grass Woman, Hester).
