Country Club + Sun Hotel + Caddywhompus performing on May 10, 2012 at 12 Bar
05.10: Caddywhompus + Sun Hotel + Country Club + KG Accidental – 12 Bar
The men in Americana act Country Club have become well-known around New Orleans for their imaginative songwriting, physical talents and drunken raucous live prowess. Unfortunately, it’s all coming to an amicable end tonight at 12 Bar, where Jack Donovan and Co. say farewell to fans and friends, leaving them with one hell of a parting gift. Download new single “Future Days” within, as a preview of tonight’s release of Country Club’s sophomore record, a swan song ripper of an offering.
Following suit with the indulgent nature of this city, one band is not enough for the average NOLA musician. West Bank natives Andrew Landry and Evan Cvitanovic, known as the masterminds behind noisy math metal band High in One Eye as well as spacey shoegaze outfit Glish, are no strangers to this tendency. When they [...]
We’re half way into Jazz Fest and our city’s young talent have already outdone themselves. Here are a few quick happenings to be aware of this week in the New Orleans underground. Royal Teeth gets signed, a new song from Country Club, and new albums from Choi Wolf and Astronomical.
In the last six months, no local venue has made a larger effort to break into a higher echelon of rock club status than hidden-in-plain-sight Garden District standby Cafe Prytania.

A good bit of natural uncertainty seems to surround new local trio Habitat, who for a time only played intermittently between each member’s full-time band schedule and who have yet to formally record even one original song for public consumption. Through most interpretations, the band is nothing more than a side project: guitarist Andrew Landry [...]
Sun Hotel + Country Club + Donovan Wolfington peforming at Cafe Prytania on December 12, 2011 for The Chinquapin Records Chindig 03: A Holiday Social
To celebrate the release of the Holiday Charity Jingler, their second compilation of songs in as many months, the dudes at Chinquapin Records are hosting a winter celebration at Cafe Prytania on Friday night. Aided by newcomers and proto-emo classicists Donovan Wolfington, southern indie rockers Country Club will host the festivities with the swampy Sun Hotel – lively and raucous performances that will be easy to delight in, regardless of how drunk we’ll undoubtedly all get.
10.07: Sun Hotel + Leaving + Ben Jones – One Eyed Jacks
It’s no secret we give the post-Gospel swamp rockers in Sun Hotel a lot of press, but equally obvious should be how and why they manage to keep the attention of local music enthusiasts of all stripes: These guys never stop. This insistence has imbued the band with an impressive combination of focus and prolificity, and as a newly minted four piece, Sun Hotel is showing off a sharp and energized new sound that gives even the most brooding dirges a tight, punched-up disposition without compromising the heavy, atmospheric mood found on new EP Gifts.
