ALEC Ounsworth is out on the road once again, bringing the music of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah to living rooms across the United States. Here’s the deal: you won’t know where the show is until you buy a ticket.
Indie darlings of the mid-2000s, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah won the hearts of listeners and critics for their artsy take on indie-pop. Their self-titled debut enjoyed a 10th anniversary edition reissue last year. While Ounsworth’s untamed, zig-zag vocals and bizzaro dance rhythms feel very of the era after a decade has passed, it’s still catchy as all-get-out. The reissue came with a 12-track cassette of solo acoustic recordings—a nice taste of what Ounsworth’s intimate Savannah gig might be like.
The show, produced by Undertow, has a few rules that traditional venues won’t: remember, it’s a performance, not a party. Be respectful of the home and others. Recording, audio or video, is not allowed, but non-flash photography is okay as long as it’s done in a non-intrusive or distracting manner. Seating is typically a gather-round-on-the-living-room-floor situation; once you purchase your ticket, you’ll receive information detailing whether you should being a folding chair or cushion.
