Cold Cave - Cherish the Light Years
Just found out about this band and already in love! It's like '80s new wave...but much darker. While the band has two shows this week easily accessible, of course, they fall on the worst dates, Thursday here in Cinci (going to see Jessica Lea Mayfield) and Friday in Bloomington (mom's visiting). But, thankfully, they are performing on Nashville, TN on Good Friday with the band below. I have the day off and just found out it's only about four hours away!
The Kills - Blood Pressures
The two-man blues band seems to be a formula that works wonders (see White Stripes, The Black Keys). This duo ups the ante with sexily husky female vocals and a drum machine, in lieu of a drummer...who needs them anyway when they never wear any pants. This is easily one of my top ten favorite bands, I'm excited for another great
The Raveonettes - Raven in the Grave
Scandinavian always seems to work out well, too (see just about every Scandinavian band ever, not ABBA). This Danish band is loud, fuzzy (the sound, not the people) and overall awesome. They're in Cincinnati tomorrow, definitely going!
