Caught Umber Sleeping and The Camellias at Cafe Venus/Mars Bar on Friday.  The Camellias are indie-rock big band thang with a great keys player who bounces around and rips some happy-go-lucky solos. Check him out:

The rest of the crew serves it up. Here's a shot of the singer, crooning, and the drummer, banging:

Umber Sleeping had a great new wave psych thing going on. Hypnotic. No bass but that was okay. The Korg made up for it.  Sounded right on. Got out of the seat and in front to absorb sound waves. Live sound is a lot different than the tunes on their MySpace page.  Check out the 70s-o-rific album art:
