The Belles (early show)

with Dada Swing / Bring Back the Guns

Gaslight Gardens

Born as a duo consisting of former Creature Comforts frontman Chris Tolle and drummer Jake Cardwell, The Belles boast some of the best songwriting chops in the area, with heavy doses of Neil Young-inspired balladry and a predilection towards early-'70s folk and country music. The band has spent the last couple years touring the world over and releasing a series of well-received EPs on the Eat/Sleep UK label. With The Belles' latest full-length indeterminately shelved, Tolle and Cardwell are staying busy by playing with KC bands Olympic Size and The Caves, respectively.Openers Dada Swing hail from Rome, Italy and exhibit a crude mix of disco, punk, hip hop and no wave. The band appeared on Kill Rock Stars' "Fields and Streams" compilation, furthering its quest to bring some Italian avant-rock stylings to the worldly masses.
