The Yellow K Records Party Friday night, was, by all accounts, off the hook. Between Sidewalk regulars Erin Regan and Jagged Leaves (which features Regan supporting her husband Dan Penta/Cockroach Bernstein) were other acts on the Maryland label.
Seagulls, the Deli’s band of the month, followed Regan’s calmly depressing set*. A harmonic folk act, the band engaged a growing crowd.
New God, on tour, was next. It’s been said they are sacharine pop, like “listening to a tripped-out seashell.”
Jagged Leaves finished it up. In it’s most primitive incarnation, the happy loving couple sang Penta’s songs, old and new, with harmony and enthusiasm. The crowd had diminished after midnight, but was still big enough to provide thunderous applause for the band, now at home in their new label.
* But awesome. Always awesome.
