While listening to Randy Jackson being interviewed by Jim Cantiello from MTV News about one of my favorite bands, Paper Tongues, Randy manages to slip in a great comment pumping Adam Lambert up. Check it out at 2:04.
And if you’re going to be in Las Vegas to see Adam Lambert on July 31 and you’re there a day early, check out Paper Tongues in the Bang a Gong Tour at Hard Rock Café on the strip July 30, for only $12. Fan site administrator Lila and I have already bought our tickets! They’re playing with 2 other bands whose clips sound really good too. Please don’t kill me with comments, I’m not trying to take attention away from Adam, but Lila and I discovered Paper Tongues playing on the same show with Muse in Las Vegas last December and think everyone should have a chance to love them too. We fell in love with their music and went up to The Troubador in Los Angeles to see them last month, where we met Randy Jackson that night.
Here’s some Paper Tongues for you to check out! This is their current release, “Trinity,” off their self-titled album. Lead singer Aswan North is an amazing writer, writing every song on the album. His signature high crescendo voice fills the stage with warmth, accompanying his electric dance moves. This was from Lopez Tonight last month. I had tickets and unfortunately Lila couldn’t go. I went by myself and saw this from front row center, the night before my birthday. I admit his voice was a bit rough that night, but it poured from his heart, as always. You’ll see me several times in the clip, wearing a bright pink sweater. After speaking with Aswan after the show at The Troubador, he recognized me here and at 3:54, took my hand for 5 seconds, then when he released it he touched his hand to his heart. I will never forget that birthday present!
I hope you become hooked on this great band too!
