Election night shenanigans

Murder By Death? The result of too much political coverage

If incessant nitpicking and network blatherskite are ruining your election night, this lineup might ease your bleary red, white and blue eyes: Murder By Death, J. Roddy Walston & The Business and William Elliott Whitmore play Uncle Pleasants (2126 S. Preston St., 634-4147) Election Night. Whitmore’s new album on Anti drops next year, and you will most likely get a taste of it Tuesday. Murder By Death, featuring hometown gal Sarah Balliet, will weave its cabaret-like miasma, and the soon-to-be-hitched J. Roddy Walston & The Business is heir apparent to the title of “America’s Bar Band.”
