Day #14 - Artist #14 - thenewno2 (pronounced "the new number two"):

Thenewno2

Paul McCartney is not going to be the only one with Beatle blood on stage at this year's Coachella. On Saturday April 18, 2009, thenewno2 are prepared to grab the baton from where the "quiet one" unfortunately handed it off much too early. Dhani Harrison, son of the late great George Harrison, along with longtime friend and musical partner Oliver Hecks, comprise the creative mind of thenewno2. The result is the accomplished debut album, You Are Here, released tomorrow, March 31st, that sounds like what one would expect if post-Beatles George joined Radiohead. Dhani never gives the impression that he's trying to be a Beatle, but he definitely hasn't forgotten that he is the son of one.

If you missed Paul McCartney when he performed at Amoeba Hollywood for an unforgettable performance in 2007, you have a second chance to see a Beatle tomorrow night....well, half of one at least. For more information about thenewno2 instore, click here.
