Kenny Young and the Eggplants to Play Live in Studio Q!!!
Saturday, June 30th /4 PM EDT

We first heard about Kenny Young and the Eggplants years ago, when Station Manager (and host of Cocktails with Chris) Chris Potter caught a gig by them at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Playing to a delighted and tightly-packed crowd in what looked like an Edinburgh University cafeteria, The Eggplants merrily destroyed a plastic wall clock while pounding out wonderful tunes about giant, mutant squirrels, the cosmic implications of a simple haircut, and the fear of becoming a lawyer. Permanently marred by the experience--but in a good way--she brought a couple of Eggplant CD's home with her.

We were delighted to reconnect with Kenny Young and the Eggplants late last winter, and even happier when they agreed to come up and play live in our GAGA studio. Their sound? A little Velvet Underground, REM without the mumbles (but with the smarts), indie-freak-folk-ish. Robyn Hitchcock, but sunny. Brian Wilson without the breakdown. They make you smile until your face hurts. And they put on a great show.

You'll want to listen live at 4 PM on Saturday, June 30th, when Chris interviews Kenny Young and The Eggplants and they play us some of their incomparable music!
