Tonight (2/18) – Libel takes the stage at Knitting Factory (361 Metropolitan Ave). This band draws on melodic-yet-jagged 90s post-hardcore and should be cool live. Also on the bill is Grand Resort, who seem to have perfected a mixture of shoegaze, jangle, and new wave that takes you back to the 80s effortlessly. Of course, both bands are still very now, too. Check them out with Kins. Doors at 8:00, show at 8:30, $10 entry. Tickets here.
Isle of Rhodes EP (2/8) + Driftless Recordings (2/6) // Mutual Benefit (2/8) // Unlocking The Truth (a band of 12 yr olds!) (2/9)
This week, I’ve been enjoying the forthcoming EP from Isle of Rhodes: Affirmation Caravan. The band will play a release show at Spike Hill 2/8. Also, I have a few other shows you might want to check out.
It’s always impressive when you discover what you thought had to have been the work of at least three, if not four or five, individuals is actually the work of a duo. Isle of Rhodes is the most recent band to provide me with this pleasant surprise.
