As promised in last Friday's Mile High Makeout, I just had the opportunity to crash a practice session by the newly reconstituted Curious Yellow. Though founder Adam Lancaster has lost count of how many lineups have flown beneath this flag, I think it's safe to say that this particular version is going to make a huge splash when it makes its public debut on February 6 at the hi-dive.
According to Lancaster, the headlining gig came about almost by accident, as the result of a casual phone call to the hi-dive's Ben Desoto. It doesn't hurt to be as well-connected as Lancaster, one of the brains behind Morning After Records.
