I’m in catchup mode here on the blog and one of the bands that I forgot to hype a few weeks back was Surprise Me Mr. Davis. They had announced a release set for April 13th called That Man Eats Morning For Breakfast, a seven-song EP featuring some of the tracks that the band has been playing for years now.
The often elusive American rock and roll band SURPRISE ME MR. DAVIS, comprised by members Nathan Moore, Brad and Andrew Barr, Marc Friedman and Marco Benevento, have announced an April 13 release for their long-awaited EP, THAT MAN EATS MORNING FOR BREAKFAST. On the same day, the band will commence their first shows of 2010 with a five date Northeast run that begins in Boston, stops in Providence and Albany, and concludes with back to back nights in Brooklyn and New York City. Later in the month, they’ll play two late night shows during the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. SMMD also plans three dates in the Northwest at the end of June before heading to California for two sets at High Sierra Music Festival.
I’m told by a friend that we’ll be seeing a late-night SMMD set at High Sierra but nothing has been finalized on that yet from the source. We’ll keep you all posted and see you in the front row at HSMF!
