Everybody Was In the French Resistance ... Now! w/Evan P. Donohue 

When: Wed., May 19, 9 p.m. 2010
With hangdog charm and a wry everyman persona, EWITFR … N! singer Eddie Argos sounds like a cross between a stand-up comedian with a heart of gold and a punch-drunk James Murphy fronting a ’60s girl group. Few people could pull off the deadpan glibness on the one hand — having a British accent certainly helps — and heartfelt emotion on the other that Argos, also of Art Brut, does in his latest endeavor. Imagining himself as Jimmy Mack from Martha and the Vandellas’ classic, Argos sings: “Did you do this to make me jealous? / Singing songs about other fellas?” His partner in crime, Dyan Valdes, proves to be a perfect foil, lending atmosphere and charm with her smoky vocal harmonies.
