Yeah, you missed it last night. Except of course if you were one of the lucky 1oo ticket holders that snapped up entry to this rare live Extra Fancy performance before you could even spit out “S-I-N-N-E-R-M-A-N”…their first in 10+ years. They delivered their classics such as “You Look Like a Movie Star, Honey” and “Violator” like they had never taken break from the scene, and the crowd loved every minute of it. Don’t fret, they will do another gig next spring, plenty of witnesses heard that promise and will hold them to it!
Extra Fancy is Brian Grillo (lead singer and oil drum), David Foster (bass), Derek O’Brien (drums) and Michael Hateley (guitar); and for those of you who may be unfamiliar (get familiar!), they were a beloved staple of LA’s 1990’s Silver Lake-based queer and straight indie music scenes and they have been missed!
Thanks Cafe NELA!… northeast LA’s little hub of punk, garage, rock, jazz, blues, experimental, psychedelic and ethnic music.
