We were recently graced with a series of North American live dates from Stephen Coates (aka the Real Tuesday Weld, aka The Clerkenwell Kid aka the Coolest Guy alive). Stephen and his dashing band won over crowds across the continent with their unique multi- media show.

In other Real Tuesday Weld news: Acclaimed Russian animator Alex Budovskiy's whacked out new video "Last Time in Clerkenwell" is burning up the views at You Tube's screening room. Stephen and Alex met when Alex wrote him as a fan telling him the Real Tuesday Weld song "Bathtime in Clerkenwell" had inspired him to make a video. When Stephen saw the actual video he was blown away. That video went on to win many awards including a "Best Animated Short" award at Sundance. This new video is the sequel to that masterpiece and is already following in its footsteps by racking up a number of impressive awards as well as critical raves. The video features the Real Tuesday Weld track "Cloud Cuckooland".
