It List: Wednesday

It's What We Get (Hailey's): Alan Palomo and Jason Faries' new dance night seems to be the most promising new electro weekly in the area, featuring a wide variety of pop, disco, and house, all brought to you with a respect for history that you wouldn't expect from a young duo and a taste for the newest dance tracks that you totally would.

Taxi Fare (Zubar)



Vampire Weekend/Uptown Bums/Handclaps and Harmonies (Rubber Gloves): If you've ever wondered what it would sound like if the Walkmen did a song for song cover of Paul Simon's Graceland, then you probably have too much time on your hands. And if you've ever wondered about that AND thought it might sound cool, then you're probably a dork. And you'd also probably like Vampire Weekend, because they sound like that. I'm being a jerk, I know, but I can't take these NYC buzz bands anymore. If these guys were from Dallas, they'd probably be opening for the Valentines or something.

I like that place to bury strangers stuff, but there seem to be a flurry of buzz bands coming from NYC that I would pass on.

if these guys were from dallas they would probably be dicks and have a light show and brand new guitar center receipts for their brand new gear in brand new rack cases.

but they are nice and playing on shit and still manage to sound like classic AOR.

is more like williamsberg/pawnshop version of crystal skulls if you axe me.

huh
