Andy Werth/Young Sportsmen at High Dive

Looks like a great show at the High Dive tomorrow night with Andy Werth, Young Sportsmen and Love Like Fire.

Young Sportsmen are a one of SPB’s favorite bands and their album Death to Palaces was one of the very best records of 2007 - if you don’t have it yet you really should pick it up. They have a new record (produced by Johnny Sangster) coming out in May and they’ll be previewing some of its songs tomorrow night.

Andy Werth is a very talented guy and his super catchy, upbeat piano and horn driven pop will remind you of the ‘70s AM gold of Elton John, Todd Rundgren, Gilbert O’Sullivan, Chicago and 10cc. He’s an exuberant performer and his set is sure to put a smile on your face.

I don’t know much about Love Like Fire except that they're from San Francisco and that Spin magazine called their music “beautifully orchestrated rock”.

Go check it out.
