Local H Taking On Rush's 2112 For New Year's Eve Bash

Leave it to Local H to ring in the New Year in a big way with not only their own hits but with some hundred years premature Rush 2112 jams! We received the following details:

Chicago's Local H will ring in 2012 with a hometown set at the Bottom Lounge (1375 W. Lake St.). The New Year's Eve show will celebrate the end of the world (as predicted by the Mayans) with a salute to Rush's 2112 and handlebar mustaches.

"This is the end of our sci-fi New Year's trilogy," explains Local H frontman Scott Lucas. "We did 2001 and 2010 -- both of those were obviously nods to Kubrick. For 2012, we had no choice but to celebrate the oeuvre of Roland Emmerich. He's pretty much cornered the market on annihilation and destruction. Expect lots of explosions."

In addition to digging into their own deep catalog, which includes six studio albums, a quasi-greatest hits, a live album, an awesome mix-tape covers record and several EPs, Local H are preparing a slew of their favorite end-of-the-world songs, including bits of Rush's "2112" opus (Side A of the 2112 album). A video montage, edited by Felix Pinero of Bailout Pictures, will accompany the performance.

"Being Rush fans, we also realized that it was now or never to do something with 2112," says Lucas. "It's not numerically correct, but none of us will be around in 100 years, so we're doing this for humanity's sake. I hope Brian has enough drums."

Local H are currently working on their seventh studio album, tentatively titled Hallelujah! I'm a Bum. The two-man band -- frontman Lucas covers both guitar and bass through an extra pick up in his guitar while drummer Brian St. Clair pounds out the rest of the sound -- is known for their gut-quaking live shows and incredibly loyal fan base. Their most recent release, Local H: The Island Years, came out last spring.
