The La's return to New York after two decades
Liverpudlian cult heroes The La's are set to play their first American show since the early '90s. Mercurial frontman Lee Mavers and crew will appear at New York's Webster Hall on March 12 as part of a one-day media conference presented by Liverpool Sound City. Tickets are on sale now.
It took over three years for The La's to release their 1990 self-titled album due to Mavers' perfectionist tendencies, and the singer-songwriter so disliked the finished album that he broke up the band shortly after its release. The timeless single "There She Goes" has kept them in the public eye, but although Mavers has sporadically performed with a new lineup of The La's since 2005, no new recordings have been forthcoming.
Incidentally, la' is a term of familiarity among folks from Liverpool, a shortened form of "lad." It's roughly equivalent to how the word "mate" is used in the rest of the UK, or "dude" in America.
