Slim Cessna's Auto Club, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary last April, had been playing annual New Year's Eve shows at the Bluebird Theater
for the past eleven years. This year, the band is playing two nights at the Oriental Theater
-- with the Sterling Sisters (which features Slim's son George) opening both nights, the Denver Broncos UK (Munly, Slim Cessna, Lord Dwight Pentacost, Rebecca Verao) opening on Sunday and Munly & the Lupercalians opening on New Year's Eve. Backbeat spoke with Jay Munly about the new Auto Club album, his awkward interview style and seeing Billy Bragg at the Rainbow Music Hall
in the '80s.
