Sweatheart is a pop band from Philadelphia fronted by Columbus native Thom Lessner, who’s also a painter and printmaker. (If you’ve been to Dirty Frank’s you’ve seen his stuff.) Sweatheart has a new six-song EP 12″ out called Tell Your Sister. It looks a lot like that picture up there. You’ll also find the above songs on it.

Sweatheart will be at Carabar in Columbus on Jan. 21 with Barry and the Eastenders and The Beatdowns. (Thanks samchecker.)

Columbus Ex-Pats Updates

Aside from the Spoon and Brother Ali shows, Columbus has been kinda boring me this past week. The SEVEN Karoake nights, ZAS release party and many talent shows didn’t quite give me what I need.

It has actually driven me to quit drinking.

Throw in the impending shutting down of Little Brothers and The Other Paper getting bought, and Columbus seems a little bit shaky right now. Sometimes I think our city gets a little spotty because ot the constant brain drain of our best and brightest. Then the locals waste their collective time with cocaine and karoake.

So to give myself some stimulation, I decided to by check in on Columbus Ex-Pats via the intrawebs.

THOM LESSNER, drawer and singer-songwriter brother of number 1 restaurant starter Liz Lessner recently appeared on Darren’s Basement. From what I can gather, the show is a real-life Philly version of Wayne’s World. In the clip Thom’s band Sweatheart gets interviewed by kill bitches-get money rap pioneer Schoolly D.

PATRICK O’DELL & ANGELA BOATWRIGHT are former Columbus citizens that take pictures for publications like Vice, Thrasher, and Mass Appeal. They are showing pictures of young people acting or at least looking like they are up to no good in Los Angeles..
