See Eels with no strings attached

Tonight is the second night of Eels "warm up shows" at The Roxy before they hit the road for another tour of the globe. Oddly enough, they don't have a new album to promote and this will actually be the second world tour supporting 2005's Blinking Lights and Other Revelations. However, Eels ringleader and Silver Lake resident E notes, "Blinking Lights is a big album (33 tracks to be exact) and it deserves at least two world tours in its honor."

While last time around E brought a full string section to back him up on stage, this latest tour will feature a more conventional rock band line-up. "[Eels with Strings]was a great tour for us, but that was SO 2005," says E. We're into something a little different now." If you've never seen Eels before, make a point to go check out this show tonight. It seems like E is always touring in a different configuration of the band every time he takes Eels out on the road, yet he always seems to outdo himself from the time before.

Don't know if it's said enough, but I love this site. I'm moving to Silver Lake and found your blog via searching that way. So glad I did. This is right up on the blogroll. Awesome. Love it.
