Puttin' on the Ritz + Bryan and the Haggards

Puttin' on the Ritz, featuring punk-lounge crooner B.J. Rubin and consummately spastic drummer Kevin Shea, monkeys around with popular standards so you don't have to. On its latest release, White Light/White Heat, the group turns its skewed eye toward the Velvet Underground. Openers Bryan and the Haggards are a self-proclaimed "avant-country cover band" spun off from the schizo-bebop unit Mostly Other People Do the Killing.
