Little, Big is putting out their first album! The Band Mom has been doing college radio promotion for it and is presenting this show to celebrate its release! It’s even on a Friday night – THIS Friday night! See you there!!
Here is a poster for it, designed by Dana (alter-ego of “Little”) herself!
Here’s the facebook invite. Here’s some more stuff about it!!
It’s at Union Hall, a favorite place of mine and a venue where I also often work the door. It’s at 702 Union St, just east of 5th Ave in Park Slope Brooklyn. It is not the same place as Union Pool, so don’t go there. Take the R train to Union St and walk 1 block east!
It costs 8 bones, the doors are at 8pm, and the music starts at 8:30. Here’s stuff about the bands! In last to first order:
“The duo in Wazu crafts an almost scary electro-rock with industrial tinges and a pop soul. Their guitar sound alone commands awe, while the overall apop-calyptic mood of their music brings to mind that masterpiece of the 80s that is The The’s Infected.” -The Deli NYC 2012
Also check them out at KEXP’s Song Of The Day 2 weeks ago!!
Weird Children are 5 foul-mouthed humans crafting tight garage pop nuggets of sound in their Bushwick loft. Feed them greasy hamburgers and cheap beer to make friends, but be warned, they just might follow you home.
(I shared a room with some of these guys during SXSW. If they’re anything in live performance like they are as people, this show is gonna be superfun, smell like feet and drink a LOT of beer.)
Pins and Narwhals is the culmination of five years of musical and artistic collaboration between singer/artist Dana Young and musician/composer Chuck Meyer. It’s Little, Big’s debut album (and also a comic book) and is a product of their story – nine songs stripped of pretention and full of confidence, energy and fun. Paired with Dana’s pencil drawings to carry surreal but universal messages about relationships and play, the sound mixes sequenced drums and sparse keyboards with dirty bass and intuitive pop melodies.
BTW did you see this nice stuff My Old Kentucky Blog said about these guys?? Check it: “The magneticism’s in Dana Young’s innocently emotional delivery, Chuck Meyer’s inspired bass lines and peels, and a sense of reinventing the “Indie Pop” and new wave wheels. Little, Big’s ingenuous attack, which combines passion with spontaneity, feels fresh as anything.”
SEE YOU THERE, BROOKLYN!!! This is gonna be FUN.
