Eldridge Gravy CD Release /Mini Tour with The Monophonics

ELDRIDGE GRAVY & THE COURT SUPREME TO UNVEIL SECOND ALBUM. On Friday, June 24,2011 at 8 p.m., Eldridge Gravy & The Court Supreme will release their sophomore album “PARTY HARD” at The Crocodile. “PARTY HARD” finds the Seattle ensemble delving further into the raw soul and funk sounds they explored on their debut album, “Us Is What Time It Is” (2009). The 13-piece group traverses a wide range of styles, from uptempo northern soul stompers (“Into The Sun,” “Grow”) to New Orleans funk (“Bafftub Jim”) to slow-burning psychedelia (“Throat Dry”). The album was recorded and mastered with Mell Dettmer at the esteemed AVAST and Aleph studios and will be available on CD and vinyl. In the time since the release of their last album, Eldridge Gravy has toured the west coast, played Bumbershoot, and sold out several prestigious Seattle venues including Nectar Lounge and the Tractor Tavern. Upon review of one of the band's Tractor shows, Slog writer Kyle Regan said, “Eldridge Gravy & The Court Supreme had me doing dance moves I didn't know I was capable of." After recently playing their 100th show to a sold-out LoFi Gallery, The Crocodile show will undoubtedly be one of the biggest funk shows in Seattle this summer and, if history is any indicator, will sell out. Also playing are The Monophonics (San Francisco) and Funky 2 Death. Presale tickets are available via The Crocodile's website.
