How about a local connection for this band based in Nashville? Daniel Ellsworth & Great Lakes bassist Marshall Skinner is a Columbus guy so you gotta root for him, right? And after giving the band’s latest release, Civilized Man (available digitally for the low price of $5.99), a listen, that’s a pretty easy thing to do.
Ellsworth, who appeared on season 3 of NBC’s singing reality competition Sing-Off, recently premiered a pretty cool (and bloody) video for “Bleeding Tongue”. (Sounds a little Jack White-ish to me.)
Daniel Ellsworth & Great Lakes are playing Rumba Cafe (2507 Summit St.) on Saturday, July 14. Joshua P James and The Paper Planes and Joshua Black Wilkins open the show. Cover is $7.
