Radle Returns with Rentals

A little over two years ago, Sara Radle decided to pack her bags and go west in hopes of bigger rock and roll dreams. I was a fan of hers since the first time I saw Lucy Loves Schroeder back in 2000. I loved LLS, I loved Fred Savage Fanclub, and I really loved her solo work. I missed her when she left for Dallas, but I hoped she would be able to do well for herself out there.

Sara Radle joined The Rentals in 2006. I'd say that she's doing quite well indeed. Tonight, Sara and the rest of the band will be in Dallas, headlining a show at House of Blues. So in honor of her return, I leave you with two videos.

The first, "Nobody's Watching", comes from her full length solo CD, You Can't Make Everybody Like You. Watch for the police helmet costume in the video. I own it now; I bought it from Sara at a garage sale. It's my own little piece of rock and roll memorabilia. The second video is the Rentals' "The Love I'm Searching For", recorded live this past August in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Yeah, the Rentals sure are... um.... easy on the eyes these days. If you know what I mean.
