Hilly Eye (Amy Klein and Catherine Tung) played a Permanent Wave presented benefit for C.L.I.T. Fest at Acheron last Friday (5/11) with Claire’s Diary, Lost Weekend, and The Shivering Brigade. Pictures from that show are in this post.

As mentioned, Hilly Eye signed to Don Giovanni, and their debut 7″ will be out on the label next month. Stream the a-side of that 7″, “Jacob’s Ladder,” below. The duo will play a release show for the 7″ at Cake Shop on June 9 with Shellshag, Necking, and Queening. The flier for this show is below.

Meanwhile, Amy Klein’s other band, Amy Klein and the Blue Star Band, have changed their name to Leda and they’ve got a show TONIGHT (5/15) at Big Snow Buffalo Lodge with Cindy Lou Gooden, Young Unknowns, and Emerald Lakes. The show is a Permanent Wave benefit for Hollaback, “an international movement using mobile technology to end street harassment against women and LGBTQ folks.” Doors are at 8 PM for tonight’s show.

Leda also have upcoming shows at Cuddle Cave on Saturday (5/19) and Union Pool on June 1.
