LOOK: The Henry Clay People Partner With Songs For Kids During December Satellite Residency

When we checked in with LA rock quartet The Henry Clay People back in 2010, it was to announce the entertaining and strange video for infectious anthem, "Your Famous Friends."
Though, unbeknownst to them, that song title has been informally adjusted to "Our Famous Friends," which is FILTER's term of endearment for these likable and talented dudes that have left us head-bobbing and drumming on steering wheels since last June, when Twenty-Five for the Rest of Our Lives (TBD Records), dropped.
And now, for the ultimate reason why we are currently stoked about HCP: they have a residency at The Satellite in Silver Lake during the entire month of December, giving all us Angelenos four chances to see them beginning Monday, December 3 and ending on New Year's Eve—kicking off 2013 the proper way.
This residency is not only presented by yours truly, but several other reputable companies are involved, such as The Songs for Kids Foundation. The residency shows will be recorded, with the proceeds going to the SFK Foundation. The openers will most likely make appearances on these recordings for sale as well! Even the SFK founder, Josh Rifkind, will be there each night to chat about his organization. Is it December yet?
Below is a refresher as to why The Henry Clay People rule. How many times have you screamed while singing, "Every band we ever loved is selling out or breaking up"? We can't really answer that one either.
Check out a few other artists performing during the first week of HCP's residency:
