If you live in or around Costa Mesa, Calif. and are looking for some FREE entertainment tonight, consider stopping by Detroit Bar on Placentia Ave. to check out local super-group, Aushua.
A bit about the band: they've been on the rise for longer than they probably care to remember; they've compiled a solid library of original tunes and have had numerous U2 comparisons (which I prefer not to acknowledge); they're loved by Kat Corbett, resulting in a fair amount of play on KROQ's "Locals Only"; toured with Thrice; Nate's vocals make ladies go weak at the knees; were scheduled to perform on The Carson Daly Show, so on and so forth ... the point of listing the credentials is to atone for requesting your sacrificing a few extra hours of shut-eye.
Come by, have a drink, enjoy Nate's witty humor, watch Lee work up a sweat, scream for Phil and consider it an evening well spent. Oh, and try to coax Eric into expressing some degree of emotion. If you do, I'll give you $5.
Lastly, I'm sorry, I know, the photo is poor quality. I blame Canon and my low-end 18-55mm lens. Give me $1,000 and I'll upgrade.
You can find a few of their songs and more about the band @ myspace.com/aushua.
