Thursday, August 16th 2012: Imaginary Friends (August residency), then… DJ Jack Savage

TONIGHT’S SHOW ($8):

It’s part two of Imaginary Friends’ August residency!  First, a few words from the band:

“…IMAGINARY FRIENDS take to the stage for the second installment of their August residency at The Grand Victory in Brooklyn…the first one was fucking epic and again we must give BIG thanks to The Grand Vic and their staff….such an amazing bunch, much love…and also huge shout outs to Sabatta, Dances, and Apollo Heights for giving the crowd incredible performances…BOOM!”

 

  • Brooklyn four-piece Imaginary Friends make plodding, dark, brooding music.  Imagine Joy Division dipping their toes into a pool of evil skate punk.  Or imagine skateboarding an evil empty pool at midnight listening to Joy Division?  Listen here.

  • Two-piece Chrome Christ, a self-described amalgamation of “drum machines, switch blades, synths & black leather,” make simple dirty electronic tunes of cynicism and deep-running apathy.  Punk-ethos two-chord compositions played out on sequencer, synth and drum machine.  Listen here.
.
.
  • Little Italy are “three Italian-Americans playing garage rock,” a greasy girl-fronted rock and roll outfit with an arsenal of two-minute-and-under and three-chord-and-under gems.  Listen here.

  • Brooklyn chanteuse Buffie Roseanne makes minor-key, mostly acoustic ballads.  Her smokey and sultry vocals— at times breathy, at times full-throated— evoke another time.  Listen here.
