Tour Sampler: Lady Danville Hits the Road with Guster and Jack's Mannequin

Written by  Published in Previews Thursday, 18 August 2011 19:40

So, since writing about the Dawes and Blitzen Trapper Tour Sampler EP, I got to thinking about what a great idea this so called tour sampler is, so I've decided to try my hand at it.  Basically, I'm just going give you info about a tour and the low down on the bands playing is so you can keep overanalyzing Animal Collective albums and cursing crappy Pitchfork reviews.

And, since the boys of Lady Danville are living the dream and touring with Guster (A dream come true for Lady Danville; they cited Guster as a favorite band and great source of inspiration when I interviewed them back in January) and Jack's Mannequin, I thought this assembly of like-minded, heart-bearing songsters would be a great place to start.  Here goes.

Guster:

Guster-band-rp02

Guster is an infectious pop quartet that's been around for quite a while.  With performances known for humor and a lighthearted but witty sound, they're definitely a great band for someone like Lady Danville to look up to.

Jack's Mannequin:

Andrew McMahon, the face and voice behind Jack's Mannequin (and now defunct Something Corporate), is a force to be reckoned with.  With impeccable songwriting that evokes entire ranges of emotions, hooks for days, and an undeniably rich passion for music, this is a live set not to be missed (I know personally from seeing him at Coachella).

Lady Danville:

Lady-Danville

Lady Danville is the delightful trio that's guaranteed to put a smile on your face.  My fellow UCLA Bruins are some of the nicest guys you'll ever meet, and they've got the sweet tunes to match. Moreover, their performances include everything from ukeleles to harmonicas to love songs to barber shop trio harmonies.  Plus, singer/guitarist Dan's bowtie is pretty freaking adorable (especially in person).

Claire Gallagher

Claire Gallagher is from Las Vegas, Nevada.  She grew up under blinking signs for Girls, Girls, Girls! and she hummed to the clanky sounds of slot machines in casinos and grocery stores and airports.   She now attends school at UCLA and is becoming very intimately acquainted with the kick-ass music scene Los Angeles so sweetly provides. When Claire is not on the back of a horse or playing with her pet snake, Skittles, she is listening to music, eating orange chicken, or spinning around in her rolly chair.  She is fond of tyrannosaurus rexes, John Steinbeck, and the fleeting feeling of post-concert deafness.  You can check her out on tumblr as well.
