If you can't take out your sweetie this Valentine's Day, why not make it up to her the next night? Nothing says "you're my special someone" like a pair of gents dressed up all classy-like in suits singing songs that would make the boys in Tin Pan Alley jealous.
Some of you may have been lucky enough to have caught the Two Man Gentlemen Band this past summer at the Lawrence Busker Fest. They play banjo, kazoo, guitar, and sing songs that bring to mind both barbershop and medicine shows.
These guys are entertaining like crazy, and they manage to play music that's certainly retro without seeming like it's a novelty. The topics run the gamut from family-friendly to mildly risque at times.
The family-friendly stuff got play this past summer, but I imagine the more ribald material will be played for the PBR-swigging masses at the Replay come February 15. At $2 to get in, you and your significant other can still manage to get good and loaded for under $20. And, really...isn't that what young, bar-hopping love is all about?
