Ezra Furman & The Harpoons Der Rathskeller, University of Wisconsin Union, Nov. 20th, 9:30PM, FREE! Based out of: Chicago Genre: Indie Rock, folk, Musical Influences: Bob Dylan, The Beatles, John Lennon, Lou Reed, The Who, Bruce Springsteen, The Velvet Underground Ezra Furman & The Harpoons were founded by 4 students at Tufts University in Boston.  They self-released their first album Beat Beat Beat in 2006  that was made in their dorm rooms.  Since then they signed with Minty Fresh Records and had their debut album Banging Down The Doors and later Inside the Human Body.  After that, they self-released an album titled Moon Face. This will be an interesting show to go to and it's FREE...so you can't complain about being poor.  Here's a video of their song "Take Off Your Sunglasses" below: You can download their song "Take Off Your Sunglasses" here: http://wmmm.radiotown.com/TakeOffYourSunglasses.mp3 You can check out more of their music on myspace. Artist Bio (taken from their website): "The Harpoons are a wild bunch. So wild and free you forgot to laugh. Bassist Job Mukkada is a singer-songwriter in his own right, but staunchly avoids the limelight because of his citrus allergy. When not drumming for the Harpoons, drummer Adam Abrutyn manufactures and sells fast-acting valor syrup which is typically drizzled over the temples and groin area. He also enjoys watching pancake wars from aboard his hydraulic space-mobile. Lead guitarist Andrew Langer was raised on rock 'n' roll, if you can call Polish sausages rock 'n' roll. Which Andrew believes you can. He is nine feet tall and exudes a pulsating blue aura." Why should you go? 1) The Rathskeller is a cool venue where you can get some quality beer. 2) This will be an entertaining show. 3) It's free.
