King James and the Special Men are fantastic. They play at BJ's Lounge in the Bywater every Monday night at 10. Just released an ep and its available on Itunes. Here's a clip of them performing at BJ's: LINK

They have a great live show - biggest problem is that their only regular gig is the Monday nighter at 10pm (and, it usually doesn't start till around 10:30). Tomorrow, they are performing at dba at 10, and that should be a hell of a show.
