How has there not been more buzz about this show?!?!? This is our show of the week, show of the month, show of the season. We’ll be there with a bourbon in hand. Hope to see you!!
@ HAYMARKET WHISKEY BAR
FRIDAY MARCH 7, 2014 – 9P (part of the First Friday Trolly Hop)
(Squeezebot will be playing in the front bar before the show starts!!!)
The only thing that ties these three amazing artists together is that they’re all comin’ correct and have arrived to rumble the load-bearing walls of the music hall at Haymarket for the first Friday in March. A patchwork bill of live music not to be missed!
Brooklyn’s YVETTE released one of the best albums of 2013 with Process, a brutal yet poppy affair with enough hooks and teeth to keep you banging your nasty skull all night.
“Yvette are a two-piece band, but sound like an army—both in their blitzkrieged aggression and the militaristically disciplined manner in which they deploy it. Theirs is a noise molded into the contours—if not the sound—of pop music, offering an accessible entry point into a world of ugly brutalism. But if Yvette approach their music with assembly-line precison and expediency, their output is hardly identi-kit.” — Pitchfork (8.1)
RIYL: Liars, Wire, HEALTH
You know The Debauchees. You love The Debauchees. Fresh off the dropping of their debut Big Machines and Peculiar Beings (to pretty much unanimous critical praise), the ladies and gent keep their spear sharp in 2014 with a slew of new songs and industrial-strength punch.
“For such a hellish band name, [The Debauchees are] a remarkably restrained group with a taut control over their instruments, in the barbed and bright style of the post-punk revival.” – IMPOSE
RIYL: Nico, Talking Heads, Pixies
Hip Hatchet blew the crowd away during his last jaunt into town back in the fall. He’s returned to repair the damage as best he can. Hip Hatchet remains in the upper echelon of candid American songwriting – enjoy him while you can still get a good view of the stage.
“Philippe Bronchtein is not only the owner of a fine, fine beard, but is a delightful songsmith in the tradition of the finest American folkers. Intricate acoustic guitar playing combines with a sweet voice and lilting instrumentation – it’s a great fit” – Time Out London
RIYL: Nick Drake, Mt. Eerie, Mark Kozelek
Please enjoy fine bourbon and music from Squeezebot in the front bar before the music kicks off as part of the First Friday Trolley Hop.
