People Like You is a freewheelin’ freak folk traveling circus band that creates rifts in the fabric of space and time. “Music for the people, by the people, with no specific people in mind.” -Chris Hislop, The EDGE. Juxtaposing vaudevillian mischief, eastern rhythms, and psychedelic folk-rock madness with curious lyrical content and bizarre pop sensibilities, the sound is charismatic, inspired, kooky, and at times haunting. The singer/songwriter tandem of road warrior rabble-rouser Eli Elkus and his contemporary bohemian cosmonaut Andrew Polakow have created a sound that is strangely captivating and yet somehow familiar, like a new friend you swear you’ve known all of your life. It’s the kind of thing that’ll kick your brain, rattle your bones, drop your jaw, tickle your fancy, turn your head and make you say, “Huh… I can get down with that.” The shows are amusing to say the least and an open invitation for everyday people, the freakers, and the funkies to get down in the dirt and get a little strange with each other. It’s in the name – People Like You.
