11:00pm BEVERLY (NYC)
“[Drew Citron] has an incredible ear for tone and texture, which marks most of the best tracks on Careers: the crushing, blurry chords of “Honey Do”, the fuzz-flecked lead that kicks off “All the Things”, the serrated stabs of the hard-charging “Ambular.” - Pitchfork
10:15pm EZTV (NYC)
"EZTV's glitchy guitar-pop slides up the frets straight into your frontal lobe. Just try and get the melody for "Trampoline" out of your head. Once the newest Captured Tracks outfit electrocutes their sleepy riffs with the stomp of a chorus pedal, it's like laying in a hammock on moon." - Noisey
9:30pm WILDHONEY (MD)
“Listening to the group’s ambiguous guitars immediately draws to mind beloved experimental bands of the 90s like My Bloody Valentine, but Wildhoney’s deliberate pop sensibilities are there too, shining through in sparkling melodies amid layers of harmonies, vaguely recalling Kinski or Stereolab. This is band that doesn’t like limitations.” - Noisey
8:45pm ROMAN A CLEF (NYC)
Roman a Clef is Ryan Newmyer (A Sunny Day in Glasgow), Jen Goma (ASDIG, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, People Get Ready) and Kurt Feldman (Ice Choir, TPOBPAH, Depreciation Guild). Newmyer is the main songwriter here and shares with Feldman a love of mid-'80s New Pop... - BrooklynVegan
8:00pm SOUVENIR STAND (NYC)
“NYC artist Stephanie Cupo makes sweetly catchy pop with a retro twist that pulls together iconic acts like the Velvet Underground and Françoise Hardy along with the dreamy garage stylings of contemporary acts like Dum Dum Girls.” - Entertainment Weekly
In addition to all the great music we'll be hosting, we are planning loads of surprises: one night, we may have a keg in the back, or a reading of biographies in the daytime. Another night, we might sell half-pint bottles of Jim Beam, or serve pancakes during a Sunday matinee. Perhaps we will have a mustachioed guy in a vest serving the freshest, most well-balanced cocktail you've ever had. Maybe that singer with the bangs you saw in Oakland last winter will be guest bartending, or the guitarist who just played at Music Hall of Williamsburg an hour before will be DJing upstairs. At times we will serve shots in plastic cups for $3, or have a food truck take over the cafe operation for the day. You'll just have to watch for our announcements and find out!
