The Sunny Era | Red Stag | 3/10

The Sunny Era played a two hour set at the Red Stag Supper Club on Wednesday night. They are a dapper group of individuals from the Minneapolis area, but they sound like they’re from the far East. They have a worldly approach to indie rock. They remind me of DeVotchka or a Gypsy version of Mojave 3. The thing that amazes me is that the sound they produce is coming from just three people. Eric Stainbrook sings and plays guitar. Laila Stainbrook sometimes sings and plays accordion, violin, keys, and clarinet. Rob Foehl is their percussionist. This is a very original outfit for this area, and it’s one of the most refreshing bands I’ve heard from the indie scene for a long, long time.

Be sure to see their next performance at the Kitty Cat Klub on March 21st

Visit them on their site or Myspace.

P.S. Somebody please put them on the Gogol Bordello and DeVotchka bill!

    I whole-heartedly agree! I’m not sure why I don’t hear more about these guys. They lay down such cool and interesting stuff – certainly not the normal stuff we are all getting sick of. Thanks for the entry!
