I LOVE WATCHING TOUGH-ASS S.U.V.S DRIVE GINGERLY OVER BAD BROOKLYN STREETS



tonight, come, have fun. . .

Monday the 21st --> Matt & Kim - BARR - Hawnay Troof -and- Hey Willpower @ GLASSHOUSE. Matt & Kim are one of the most energetic and fun live bands in New York City right now - belting out ridiculously catchy tunes over keyboards and drums and no more. BARR = Brendan Fowler (x Dogg & Pony) - possibly the most positive man on the planet - speaking and rhyming over beats, channeling a dozen characters, twisting rhythms and taking crazed poetic tangents. Hawnay Troof is the alter-ego of xBxRx frontman Chris Touchton aka Vice Cooler - Miami booty bass beats with awesome outfits and dance moves. Hey Willpower are a R&B + dance party duo from San Francisco featuring members of Imperial Teen and Tomo.

so this is another gem i picked up on my visit to seattle. i don't know much about The Starvations, except that as soon as i heard them all i could think was, "this is that band you know is out there because there has to be great music like this. . . you just don't know the name of the band yet." infectious. and one of the best examples of band's-name-matching-their-sound i can think of.

• The Starvations - Red Wine

• The Starvations - An American Funeral


buy music, especially independent.
