  5. Please put me on the guest list for The Eels so I can get my fix of Novocaine For Soul and Mr E’s Blues.

  6. Growing up in the 90′s The Eels where the soundtrack to my teenage years! Love this band.

  7. a few years back the Eels played the Recher Theatre in Baltimore, and while walking into the show, I saw Mr. E standing in front, telling some kids that he was the roadie for the band. I looked at him quizzically,and he gave me a look to say “don’t blow my cover” so i walked inside with a smirk on my face. great band and great live show!
