November was once known for but one day: Thanksgiving. It's probably my favorite holiday; it's the first time I see my entire family together in several months and I get to watch the Dallas Cowboys typically win their Turkey Day pigskin match. But now this year, we add something else to be thankful for: Stranded in Stereo Club Night. This month, besides all the awesome bands that will be playing, we're ever so thankful to announce that we'll now be holding them at Fontana's down on Eldridge Street. Same price, same amount of fun, all things to be thankful for. Why do I keep seeing thankful so much? Oh well, continue reading on:
SIS Club Night – Wednesday November 19th – 9PM - $3
at Fontana's - 105 Eldridge Street - NYC
B or D to Grand St; F, J, M, Z to Delancey
Boy Genius [9:30 PM]
Boy Genius is an equation between strained but strong vocals, harmonica and horns, standard instruments, unique simplicity, two guys and two girls. While they draw comparisons to Pavement and REM, there's something so much more darling about their sound--and there's something about them that you have to listen to again. Boy Genius engages you before you even realize how much you like them. They're definitely catchy without being raucous, and they're definitely warm without being fuzzy.
Cinema, Cinema [10:15 PM]
Cinema, Cinema is inspired by the titular subject--cinema, and the motion and elements that contribute to it. The band takes this ideology into their music. Loud drums, driven riffs, and passionate vocals contribute to a punk, space-rock movement, scenery, and sound. Their first EP was born out of Headgear Studios, home to the likes of TV on the Radio and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Cinema, Cinema is not just music, but an art.
Simplifires [11:00 PM]
Using the internet, Simplifiers have spread their popularity from Mexico to all over the internet. But their popularity comes from a sound of juxtaposition between the vocals and pure musicianship that bring reminders of U2 and a groove unique to themselves. Their musical connections include Ratatat and a friendship amongst themselves that forces the band to create a synergy between themselves that contributes so much to their great sound.
