Laila and Smitty and Brian Bonz
LaunchPad (721 Franklin Ave., Brooklyn)
Laila & Smitty’s just another experimental country band that plays a little bit of jazz and a little bit of Japanese music. Kenny Warren plays trumpet, sings, and writes most of the songs. Jeremiah Lockwood plays the old blues guitar. MYK Freedman teases the lap steel, while Noah Garabedian and Carlo Costa hold down the rhythm. Stories of heart break, futuristic folk songs, bring your surrealist dancing shoes.
