Meet Dead Professional

I think we can all agree that it's a bummer when bands we like go on "hiatus." It tends to foreshadow a parting of the ways, and that's even more bad news that just taking a break. 

However, there is occasionally light at the end of the hiatus tunnel, as is the case here, with The Cinnamon Band's John Harouff, and his newest venture Dead Professional. Harouff retains that earnest, small town sincerity that hallmarked The Cinnamon Band while adding a casual, confident sophistication in lyrics, production, and overall attitude. Oh, and more than a little catchiness, too. Dangit, if that song "Downtown at Sundown" isn't already all over my brain. 

Dead Professional appears at DC9 tonight.
