We're very excited to announce our showcase as part of Northside Fest at Glasslands on Saturday June 26th. Tickets are $10 at the door and free for Northside badge holders (highly recommend buying a badge as the festival is Brooklyn's SXSW and has an amazing amount of can't miss shows). Here is a look at the four bands we're excited to feature. (Here is the facebook event page for the show)
I just found out about these guys a few weeks back and their music immediately won me over. They have this 50's dream pop twisted into a nightmare sound that is both catchy and dark. WLFY slapped the Required Listen tag on them and we expect 2010 to be a breakout year for Family Trees.
Family Trees - "Dream Talkin"
This band is insane. I've been wanting to see them live since we gave them Required Listen a year ago. Explosive energy and beautifully twisted tunes should make for a can't miss set.
This is my band to watch for 2010 as their free EP (grab it HERE) basically took over my iTunes. In a hypnotic state I played the five tracks over and over and recommended it to everyone and anyone who would listen.
They're obvious WLFY favorites as we post everything they do. One of the best live shows I've seen this year, every set is an automatic dance party with five synths being played in the band. They're an 80's throwback with a Passion Pit/Phoenix feel. This is their first NYC show and I'm more than pleased to introduce them to the big apple.
