Who says that a lot of hard work wonít eventually pay off? Just ask The Reputation. Balancing law school with a hectic tour schedule didnít make ex-Sarge frontwoman Elizabeth Elmore give up; she buckled down and now she's seeing the fruits of those labors: the band have been inked to Lookout Records. Come February, The Reputation will drop a new album on the Berkeley-based label. And come tonight, you NYC types can catch them as part of a tasty Lookout showcase, which will also feature Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, The Washdown, Small Brown Bike and the Bay Area tag team of Communique and evening. The gig is at CBGB's and The Rep are on early at 8PM, so do all your in-the-groove industry shit early so you can catch these kids.
