I have been asked many variations of this question all week, by about six different people. It’s interesting how when you’re losing weight, you can hit some threshold where everyone notices at the same time.
Anyway…why am I so skinny? BECAUSE I LEFT EVERYTHING ON THE STAGE DURING THESE NATE KUSHNER MONTH SHOWS, MOTHERFUCKERS!
And really, Nate Kushner Month is not over yet. Tomorrow, July 26th, is the show that I’m probably the most excited about…the debut of Igloos at Trash Bar.
Trash Bar is 256 Grand St in Brooklyn (Most People will take the L to Bedford or the JMZ to Marcy). Igloos goes on at 9, but the open bar starts at 8! See you there?
Bear witness, ye, to the debut of a new rock band that will finally succeed in turning the attention of the music press to the heretofore under-reported Borough of Brooklyn!
It’s Igloos. WHAT THE FUCK IS A IGLOOS?!?!?!
Igloos are: a noisy, Lo-fi, awkwardcore, power pop party band w ith lyrics so transgressively silly and inane that it loops back around and becomes punk rock again. These previously unsung topics are among those on the agenda to get sung about: werewolf investigators, beards of bees, six-foot party subs, the relationship of foxiness to fuckedness, and Sqrums.
Igloos are: proud to claim influences from such bands as Guided by Voices, Wire, Beat Happening, They Might Be Giants, Devo, and Young Fresh Fellows.
Igloos are: Local music! If you’re one of those people who like to say they support local music, this is some local music you can support.
Igloos are: Matt Brewster (Guitars, Basses, and Vocals), Nate Kushner (Basses, Vocals, and Guitars), Ashley Martin (Vocals, Keyboards, and Basses), and Alex White (Drums and Vocals)
Igloos are: playing at Williamsburg’s Trash Bar (256 Grand St) on Monday, July 26th.
Igloos are: On at 9, but your $6 cover gets you in to see all the bands, and to drink from the open bar taking place from 8 to 9!
