Guerrilla Show III

Gran Casino Live From Sweet Baby Lou’s House

Our third guerrilla showcase ironically precedes our last two entries, a fact that may leave the whole system to tip the scales of credibility and forever end our mission. But perhaps not. This oldie but goodie comes from our pals Gran Casino, who on a road trip from Canada stayed at Sweet Baby Lou’s mansion, later performing for the reclusive star.

This cut finds the quartet covering MGMT’s recent smash “Time To Pretend,” enjoy the show.

SWINE FLU STRIKES!

Pigs with Guns

Pigs with Guns

Hear ye, hear ye! One and all Swine Flu is here and it’s about to get ugly. Luckily Sweet Baby Lou & The Reverends of Funk were quick to sound the alarm, alerting all to the dangers of this most maligned pig spread virus. You could thank us, but we’ve already thanked ourselves enough.

You’re welcome

MALLORY

This prime cut from Mallory’s recently released CD “Lights in the Quarry” showcases the band at their best, trashy, catchy and on the verge of spiraling out of control. The CD was released officially this Saturday and can be downloaded in it’s entirety for free on the band’s website. It comes with a strong recommendation from the Reverends.

Swine Flu Telethon

JESSE PUTNAM

Waltzing through the dorms last spring, Sweet Baby Lou was fortunate enough to stumble across talented singer Jesse Putnam while casing the halls of Orchard Hill for loose change. Putnam was then involved in a now defunct acoustic ensemble, The Do-Do Crabs, however talks about a show appearance soon fell through. 

Needless to say Lou was not amused and went on to elaborately arranged Putnam’s kidnapping and eventual on-air performance at gun-point. However since then Putnam agreed to reconvene with WMUA and play a show under more favorable conditions.

Joining the reverends for their 1st Annual Swine Flu telethon, Putnam played a series of interesting selections from bands like Sufjan Stevens and The Weakerthans, even ending with Nirvana’s classic “All Apologies.”

A Future With No Goats

SASQWASH

The self described mix between an “a happy gorilla and an angry fruit,” Sasqwash gave one of the more well-rounded sets yet seen on Sweet Baby Lou. Transferring gracefully from the heavy riff rock of “Love” and “Leaving You, Leaving Me” to thrash rockers like “Decorating the Ghettos” to finally an all out acoustic jamboree with special guest Andy Suhre.

Sasqwash have been an Amherst area band for the last year and most of the members also split their time with another ubiquitous collective, Grex. However bassist Dan Shaw admits that Grex is more free form and unrehearsed.

You can check out both acts this week at Mallory’s CD release party, for further instructions go to facebook and search for the Juggler’s Meadow Mallory CD release party. However for now we leave you with Sasqwash and their horrifying view of the future with “no poop,” “no goats,” and “lots of sand.”

Guerrilla Show I

THE FUTURENOWS LIVE IN MEN’S ROOM

Sweet Baby Lou has officially gone awol. No longer content to our two hour radio time slot a week, we are libel to strike at any place and time. Take this our first ever impromptu show. Take one band (The Futurenows) denied the chance to play a live gig and four bored kids with cameras and mayhem ensues.

There we were able to film the band live in the UMass Amherst Campus Center Men’s Room, where they played a stellar version of “The Dalai Lama Song.”

We flushed, we swear. 

Call His Name Out Loud

ANDY SUHRE

Last Thursday, sandwiched between the violent riff rock of Sasqwash and thrashy indie rock of Mallory we decided to throw you a curveball in the form of acoustic singer songwriter Andy Suhre.

Hailing from Chelmsford, Mass. Andy lists everyone from Leonard Cohen to Deertick as influences and rocked us with selections from his back catalog including songs like “Ballad of a Junkie,” and “Call My Name Out Loud.” Sit back relax and enjoy.

Caution best served in easy chair.
