TVD-LA Recommends: Chop Love Carry Fire

This summer has seen a group of awesome shows by the guys in Chop Love Carry Fire. Previously mentioned on TVD, Chop Love Carry Fire is a new band comprised of some seriously veteran musicians: Jeremy Toback and Butch Norton. From Hotel Cafe and the Bootleg to Central and Molly Malone’s, the guys have been on a tour of LA, cementing their place onto the scene.

I was able to check out one of the summer CLCF shows back at Molly Malone’s and I was really impressed. There is just so much sounds coming out of three guys. There is simultaneously this intricacy and a simplicity in the arrangements: an interplay of straight forward rhythm, the force of rock, and intoxicating melody. And the talent is right in your face. All of their playing; it makes you part your lips and nod your head. There is also something familiar and nostalgic in the music; omething from my childhood in the 90s. It’s rock with a hypnotizing sound, and a mood and a purpose.

Norton, their drummer, is about to head out on tour with Lucinda Williams. So before the band is forced to take a brief hiatus from live shows, CLCF is set to play two big shows as a send off until they are back on the scene in December.

Here are the details of the upcoming dates:
September 21st | The Central | 8:30pm
September 26th | Molly Malone’s | 8pm
