The Henry Clay People Guest on NBC’s “Parenthood”

At the onset of the summer, The Henry Clay People put out their second record, Somewhere on the Golden Coast, which has garnered comparisons to Pavement, The Replacements, and The Hold Steady — not bad company.  They are taking their own style of 70s barrock on the road this October in a mostly headlining tour that will see them open a date or two for the Drive-By Truckers.  If you think you have them figured out by now, I bet you couldn’t guess the band will be appearing on the October 5th episode of NBC’s Parenthood, called “Date Night.”  Don’t get too excited, it’s probably going to be one of those 3-second intro shots of a bar after commercial, but hey, it’s national television. Good for them.
