The former members of the Tadpoles, the band that featured the late Happy Dog co-owner Sean Kilbane on vocals and guitar, will celebrate the release of their one and only album, which was recorded at Kilbane's parents' house by Mike McDonald, on vinyl as a 7-inch and as a repressed CD with a show at 9 p.m. on Saturday, April 2 at the Happy Do
g. Additional liner notes will accompany the releases.
The band will feature guitarist Mandy Look, bassist Dave Molnar, drummer Jason Look (who will sing and play guitar) and drummer Greg Boyd. Local singer-guitarist Chris Allen will join the group for a song as well.
"It will be a tribute to Sean and a way to celebrate the music and record," says Allen. "And I think he would have loved having the album out on vinyl."
The Boys From the County Hell, the local Pogues tribute act that was a favorite of Kilbane’s, will also play a few select songs that Kilbane would have liked. Other guest musicians will participate as well. Tickets are $5.
