Monday Puppetry: Herman Dune @ Echo Curio Shop Tonight
Not big on drinking green beer, but big on puppets, folksy songs and beardy silliness? Consider Echo Park Art Curio this eve to witness Herman Dune; I caught the band in a Design Within Reach of all places in Austin (note the eames chair in the photo bkg), and thoroughly enjoyed the lightweight-but-catchy songs, but more importantly the inclusion of a singing puppet which was fashioned and dressed identically to lead singer David-Ivar. The experience was of course enhanced by the glaring fact that I was listening to Herman Dune while lounging in a Herman Miller. Appears Pitchfork also has a puppet-inclusive review from this last week. $8 suggested donation; doors at 8p.
