C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Mini Mansions

I saw these guys live at The Wiltern a few years back, and I was pleasantly surprised, considering their unorthodox stage setup.

It was founded by Zach Dawes, Tyler Parkford, and Michael Shuman back in 2009, when Shuman's other band, Queens of the Stone Age, had decided to take a break after finishing up a tour. I was a little skeptical when these guys first came on stage, considering that they had this strange, half-drumset that the drummer had to stand up to play. Although, when they started playing, their performance put my apprehension to rest pretty quickly. In their set was a strange rendition of Blondie's "Heart of Glass," but in a much darker, mellowed-out tone. It stuck with me though, and I'll definitely be sure to catch these guys if they're doing another show in my town anytime soon.

Ever see a band live that you hadn't heard of before?
