The thing with supergroups is you almost never can confine them to just one show. It’s often a meeting of talents too good to deny more opportunity, and such appears to be the case with local-music conglomerate HeartPunch. Frontman Yankton Sothern’s cathartic side project (he usually drums for Bottlefish and still plays guitar when Fullers Earth gets together) brought together Steve Newman of The Domino Kings, Lou Whitney of The Skeletons and The Morells and Ritchie Allen of BringYourGreenHat for a show so well received that Sothern says it’s planning a second show at Lindberg’s in May; no word on the official show date yet. The group is also working on coordinating schedules to lay down Sothern’s tracks for an upcoming album release. It may never become a regularly performing band–the members are all involved in far too many projects to make that seem feasible–but another show with the quartet together should give those at the original High Life Live show something to look forward to, as well as a second chance for those who missed it.
