Yet another highly recommended show from the great minds and attractive folks at Truth Serum.

Wednesday December 16, 2009
Great Scott
1222 Commonwealth Ave. Allston (at corner of Harvard)
$8 show: 9pm 18+

Truth Serum Presents Lovers return to Boston: a concert! featuring:

The Secret Sea – featuring Deborah and Karen, formerly of U.V. Protection (often described as “operatic Devo”) and Dave from The Juliet Kilo. They play fun danceable electro stuff and have to get up early in the morning.


Lovers – electro and a bit loud.

Ill Ease – Elizabeth Sharp’s a one woman band making loud, fun, angular, and arty music. Rumor is that you can dance to it…if you like jerky dancing. 


Cotton Candy is Mark Robinson (of Unrest, Flin Flon and Teenbeat Records) and Evelyn Hurley (of Blast off Country Style) and sometimes their kids too. They sing cover songs and advertisements from days of yore and other ditties.
