Natural Child sound kinda like the Replacements in their ruling reckless days, which is why you should definitely go see them this Friday at one of the last of the Psycho Beach Parties of the summer. To win tickets, Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with subject NATURAL CHILD and … the best video you can find of a little kid freaking out! Most primal wins! Natural Child play with Double Negatives, Johnny O’Donnell, and the Liquor Store on Fr., August 12, at Blue Star, 2200 E. 15th St., downtown. You can also buy tickets here!
A live video of Natural Child playing “Crack Mountain.” Tell it, dudes.
Liquor Store are some wild desperate freaks. Check them smashing out their song “Commando.”
Johnny O’Donnell is some kinda pop/rock savant who has worked with Van Dyke Parks and whose video here is some Kenneth Anger-meets-Princess Bride cheerful surrealism. This is adorable and you will love it / him / them / everything ever.
THE DOUBLE NEGATIVES
They don’t have a recording yet! But it’s ex-members of 2,000 good bands, including Jawbox, Redd Kross, the Red Hearts, Exploding Flowers, Moon Upstairs and more. Enjoy the above footage of decaying film negatives instead!
