Gnarls Barkley - Stubb's - September 26, 2008

From the sponsored by viagra department... Gnarls Barkley @ Stubb's on Sept 26th!


Here's a thought, if we were guaranteed that McCain would take Palin on the President's desk in the Oval Office, would you be more apt to vote for the McPalin ticket?!? I think I would! Maybe that was the fantasy of all Americans after the RNC, then reality set in that at McCain's age he might have ED. So then McCain pole, err poll, lead shrank like taking a cold shower!

More info:

Gnarls Barkley is an American musical collaboration between multi-instrumentalist and producer Danger Mouse (Brian Burton) from New York, and rapper/vocalist Cee-Lo Green (Thomas Callaway), from Atlanta. Their first album, St. Elsewhere, was released in 2006; it and their first hit, "Crazy", were major commercial successes, and were noted for their large sales by download. The duo released their second album, The Odd Couple, in March of 2008.

Gnarls Barkley is a two-person musical group. Prior to their collaboration, both had their own lengthy careers. Cee-Lo first entered the music scene as part of the Atlanta hip hop group Goodie Mob which had a large hand in the Dirty South Movement of the 1990s. Cee-Lo left the group after their third album in 1999 and started his solo career. He released two solo albums, one in 2002, and one in 2004. Danger Mouse has produced for a number of hip-hop artists, and he produced Gorillaz' Grammy winning album Demon Days. He received national attention for his mash-up Grey Album, which blended samples from Jay-Z's The Black Album and the Beatles' White Album.

They first met in 2003 when Cee-Lo was on a tour for which Danger Mouse happened to be the DJ. They began working together on the songs that would become the St. Elsewhere album; prior to the release of that album they collaborated on the songs "What You Sittin' On?" for Lex Records in 2004, and "Benzie Box" from the Dangerdoom album The Mouse and the Mask in 2005. They took the name Gnarls Barkley for their project as a duo. Burton explains the collaboration's name came from friends, "making up fictional celebrity names like Prince Gnarls and Bob Gnarley." When Heavens' Josiah Steinbrick came up with Gnarls Barkley, Burton wrote it down.[1]
