Money Where Your Mouth Is: Earlimart and the Ryan Humbert Band

Posted By on Tue, Oct 2, 2007 at 3:01 PM

The Scene Music Department is busy, camped out in front of the Fairlawn Exchange store, determined to get a copy of the new Down album before the third consecutive shipment sells out. Rather that dig for obscure adjectives to describe Earlimart and the Ryan Humbert Band, we’ll just let the bands tell you why should see them this week. Band: The Ryan Humbert Band Web: Hometown: Akron, Ohio Sounds like: “Harry Nilsson fronting Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers in a dark honky tonk. Americana rock at its finest!” Recommend for fans of: “Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Johnny Cash, Steve Earle.” Fun fact: “In 2006 the RHB played at Blossom with Elvis Costello and the Scene Music Awards on the same night.” Playing: Special acoustic trio show on Thursday, October 4th, with Raul Malo at the Beachland Ballroom (15711 Waterloo Ave., 216-383-1124). Why you need to see them: “Because good music speaks for itself.” -- Ryan Humbert, singer-songwriter, guitarist Band: Earlimart Web: Hometown: Los Angeles/Portland Sounds like: “Eagle rock.” Recommend for fans of: “The Cobb salad.” Fun fact: “Ariana Murray (bass/piano/vocals) is related to one Robert ‘Bob’ Cobb, who invented the famous Cobb Salad in 1937.” Playing: Thursday, October 4 at the Grog Shop (2785 Euclid Hts. Blvd., 216-321-5588). Why you need to see them: “FREE MONEY!”
