Elsah- Chealsea’s, Baton Rouge La. 8/14/04 xfer from hi8 Master Tape Enhanced Alt.Country

Here’s a surprise mid-week video instead of the typical audio. It’s a band that my friend Neil Werries is in called Elsah. Here’s a quick bio of the band:

“Elsah formed around singer-songwriter Neil Werries in St. Louis in 1997. Stories of growing up in rural and small town central Illinois along with a love of bands like Uncle Tupelo, the Meat Puppets and Blue Mountain inspire Elsah’s blend of punk, rock and old time country music. Werries relocated to Baton Rouge in 2001, continuing to write and perform with likeminded musicians. Elsah’s three-guitar front – Werries on acoustic, Sam “Boykin” Short and Glenn Harris on lead – is rounded out by Nick Butitta (bass) and Chad Townsend (drums). Elsah has remained as a standard bearer of Alt-country music throughout the Gulf South for over 20 years.”

They sound good- expect more posts about these guys in the future.
