THE MICHAEL CLEM TRIO, EP RELEASE DATE, FRIDAY JAN 7 AT JAMMIN JAVA, VIENNA VA
EFO bass guy Michael Clem will bring out his brand new trio to The People's Republic of Northern Virginia for the first time. The Michael Clem Trio features Clem on guitar, mandola, harp & mouth, and he is sandwiched by two fine fellow Charlottesville VA music chums, Rusty Speidel (of SGGL fame) on guitar & higher vocals, plus Thomas Gunn (of Lost Highway) on upright bass & lonesome-er vocals. The big NoVA coming out date will be Friday, January 7 at Jammin Java in Vienna VA (five years since MC's last headline at the club, almost to the date). Opening the show will be Clem's Charlottesville pal and enabler Peyton Tochterman.
This will also be the official release date for the trio's brand new EP, a five song sampling of their latest material. At 5 bucks, it comes out to a dollar a tune, which seems to be the going rate for songs these days. This will be the first time time the EP will be available - be the first on your block to own one. Rumors of t-shirts are swirling, too. C'mon out!
