Wesley James The 5th- Lovely Bad Things PSA- Vacay at the Echoplex
As the days count down to the Lovely Bad Things record release party for The Late Great Whatever (on February the 26th at the Echo in LA) there have been Tuesday night Echoshows all month. The So Cal garage punk rockers have produced these funny crazy ass PSA's starring Wesley James (Baxter) the 5th which has made him a mini celebrity in his own right. His on screen persona is a socially inept kinda dumb guy who always gets the band names wrong and whose psyche walks the comedic line between alcohol induced pervi-ness and a total emotional breakdown. Quite the polar opposite, long time forever friend to the Lovely Bad Things is a Math and Physics tutor at one So Cal college while studying Physics at another one. He is also an excellent musician who has joined the band on stage from time to time and in a former life was a band mate with the Ward brothers in a previous musical incarnation. Jeez, I love these weird spots- you da man, Wesley James the 5th! Check out the PSA for the one and only Burger Records night Show at the Echoplex.
