Cleveland’s Afternoon Naps certainly kept us from falling asleep on last Wednesday afternoon, with their set at Little Kings. Despite a number of feedback issues throughout their performance, and even losing stage power at one point, they were in good spirits, cracking jokes and working the crowd with a string highly-danceable songs. The set mostly consisted of number from their recent release, Sunbeamed, but also included several new songs, such as “Discoverse”, which reminded me of a futurepop version of Talking Heads. Katie over at Athens Exchange has a great review.
BTW, what’s up with musicians the “Brown Chicken, Brown Cow” joke? I’ve heard three bands use it on-stage this month!
