Young Doctors in Love - Eloise and Her Sister Marta

Faced with an xmas eve layoff, Duncan "Doc Pickles" MacDonell was facing some financial and existential roadblocks — so in a "get by with a little help from my friends" gesture, Young Doctors in Love's Clay Puddester got the ball rolling for this benefit show. With the General Chaos lights swirling behind the stage, there was a strong old-school Wavelength vibe in the room. Puddester and his bandmates mixed a party-on-stage attitude with remorselessly hooky pop songs that sounded like they were products from some lab or graduate seminar where "Jesse's Girl" and "I Touch Myself" were put into a particle accelerator and carefully studied before being engraved like the ten commandments on 80's movie soundtracks.

[Rolling with the psychic vibes from this show, Doc Pickles is reviving his Crosswires series, which will be moving to the Baby G with shows on Mondays once the sun crosses the vernal equinox. Information on the first couple shows is already posted on the Crosswires facebook page.]
