Do You Like Pop Music?

If you do, there's only one place to be this friday: The Lucksmiths show at The Knitting Factory!

As a longtime fan and major proponent of the perfectly executed jangle-pop of Australia's The Lucksmiths, I feel the need to at least try to get some people out for this show on Friday. So, here's my brief pitch: If you like mellow autumn-appropriate songs, excellent lyrics, and just the right level of twee-ness (way less than, say, Voxtrot or even Belle & Sebastian), this is the show for you. Plus, the show only costs $12. What are you, cheaper than me? (not actually possible)

In addition, considering the band's small-but-rabid fanbase throughout America and the quaintness of the Knitting Factory, I can guarantee that there will be incredible energy there and the show will create sensations of something I like to call "pleasure." If you find this not to be true, seek me out after the show, and I will personally give you a one dollar refund. That's right-free money! I don't know how you can pass this up...

So how was the show?

It was a really excellent show. Their sound is bigger in person than you would expect, especially considering that they use brushes on the drums. Also, the rhythm guitar was fantastic, way better than I think of it as being. I think my friend Brandon is going to do a write-up with pictures on blackteeshirt.blogspot.com; I'll make sure to link to it/steal his pictures.

I have one picture where you can actually make it out that it's The Lucksmiths. I posted it, so take a look, if you can get past the gas on how it's been a month since my last post. Great show, though.
