After my story about below-underground antifolker Willis Earl Beal hit the streets in July, I received a string of e-mails from folks eager to get in touch with Beal. The first person to do so was Jeff Harley, a lawyer who runs a site called Urban Eyez and who wanted to help Beal meet his artistic goals. Yesterday Harley wrote about what’s happened since the end of July, which includes helping form a backing band for Beal, just in time for his first official public show at Town Hall Pub on Thu 9/15. Beal, an aspiring visual artist as well as a musical one, drew the above flyer for the show. For a preview of what to expect, check out the Urban Eyez post for a couple engrossing videos of an a cappella performance by Beal. —Leor Galil
