Money Where Your Mouth Is: Presque View

Posted By on Mon, Apr 20, 2009 at 10:47 AM


C-Notes proudly welcomes the return of Money Where Your Mouth Is, in which the music hacks shut their yap and let a band explain why you need to see them live this week.

Johnny La Rock and Mush Mouth return to action Wednesday, April 22, at the Beachland Tavern (15711 Waterloo Rd.) — even though their eponymous group has amicably split. La Rock is now concentrating on Presque Vu, an electronic/post-hip-hop group. Mush Mouth will play a solo set. —D.X. Ferris

Band: Presque Vu


Hometown: Cleveland, Ohio

Sounds like: “Primitive Radio Gods’ ‘Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth With Money in My Hand,’ a darker Beck, God Lives Underwater, Radiohead's Kid A.”

Fun fact: "The members of Presque Vu used to be in a full-fledged rap group called Johnny La Rock & Mush Mouth.”

Playing Where/When: “Beachland Tavern ,Wednesday April 22nd, 2009, with Wax & Herbal T, Mush Mouth, and Keyel.”

Why They Should Come See You: “It's essentially our debut, so you'll be the first to hear these songs. Also, it's spring, and it'll be a good chance to get out of the house and hear some new local music.” — Eddie "Johnny La Rock" Fleisher (vocals, programming)
