If March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, then apparently we have one pissed off lion this year. Forget about the wind, cold, and snow, and come out for this stellar gig Wednesday at 8 pm at Fontana’s on the Lower East Side. We’ll have drink specials and plenty of music to go around. Not only will we be treated to a special appearance from Ireland’s The Brothers Movement (this is what the Verve’s new album SHOULD have sounded like), but the night will be book-ended by some of the best indie dance NY has to offer. The weekend starts right here — it would be a night to remember if it weren’t for the nasty blackout that’s sure to hit you at some point.

Featuring Crooked Looks, Brothers Movement, Hank and Cupcakes, Last Year’s Model
Crooked Looks is anything but conventional. Their song styles can vary from a frenetic dance punk gem to a funky electro piece with undeniable “singability”, paired with fierce bass, beats and synths. Crooked Looks is leaving an indelible mark as a band with a fresh take on rock and a keen inclination to write great songs without abandoning the desire to keep their audiences moving.
THE BROTHERS MOVEMENT
The Brothers Movement play inspired psychedelia that is tender, passionate, and epic without being overblown. This five-piece from Ireland. They've played with Jesus and Mary Chain, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and Primal Scream, successfully pushing the envelope with their ready for the radio shoegaze nuggets.
HANK AND CUPCAKES
Put on your dancing shoes for this hot couple who will get your feet moving and make your jaw drop with sexy, raw minimalist pop. One guy on bass, one girl on vocals and drums explore the limits with their new age sound and kickin' attitude to popular music. You must see this.
LAST YEARS MODEL
Abandoning the traditional idea of rhythm guitars, Last Years Model combines 8-bit rhythm synths, hook-filled lead guitar lines, moroder keyboard bass and a combination of live punk drums and synthetic blips and claps to achieve their spastic pop sound. With a live show that matches its futuristic aesthetic, Last Year’s Model performs with a manic energy constantly poised on the brink of explosion.
