El Camino Hot Tub have not had a live show in a while, but the funksters just released a live version of an older song of theirs, “Last Page.”
The guys have had the number in their back pockets for over a year and thought now would be as good a time as any to release it.
The three-plus-minute tune was recorded during one of their WBOI 89.1’s Meet the Music session.
“It will be the last recording that features both our former drummer and trombone player,” said frontman Topher Beyer. “It’s sort of a bridge between our old sound and new sound that’s coming with our new trombone player, drummer, and a new auxiliary percussionist.”
Beyer says the crew is working on a new EP that will be released early next year. That provides us something to look forward to as we put this crazy year to bed.
As for seeing them on stage any time soon, they are currently putting shows on hold, largely due to COVID concerns and the size of the band.
“We promise we want to get back out and party with you, but we want everyone to feel comfortable when that happens,” Beyer said. “The time will come, my friends.”
Until we see them embrace the stage again, we have this catchy number to get us by. You can find it on Spotify and Apple music.
Muse on Main and Toys for Tots
The kind folks at The Muse on Main are holding a Toys for Tots benefit show on Saturday, Dec. 12, beginning at 5 p.m.
Ten bucks will get you in the door where you will get to enjoy six hard-hitting bands, Mantra of Morta, Mask of Sanity, Voices of the Damned, Cremated Souls, A Burden to Bear, and Demons of Wrathica.
All proceeds from the door will be donated to the Fort Wayne Marine Corp Toys for Tots program. It should be noted that the Fort Wayne Toys for Tots handed out 24,000 toys to 6,500 children last year. They expect a greater need this year because families are still feeling the financial impact of the pandemic.
Adapt to Covid restrictions
With Gov. Holcomb’s new COVID executive order now in effect, local establishments/venues are having to adapt. A word of advice: If you plan to attend any upcoming events, check with the venue or artist about their recommended safety precautions or if the show has been canceled. As always, we at Whatzup will keep you posted with changes to upcoming events. Stay safe!
