Tonight's Show Recommendation

The well-matched trio of the Spinto Band, Dr. Dog, and The Lovely Feathers are playing at Bowery Ballroom tonight. The Spinto Band plays twee power pop with the occassional kazoo, and they're all cute in a nerdy, Weezer kind of way, so if you're a girl you'll love them. I interviewed them for loose record. Philly-based Dr. Dog is sloppy but fun, and their live show is authentic and refreshing. The Lovely Feather's album, Hind Hind Legs is frighteningly manic-depressive, but live this might come off as raucous rather than psychotic. And their jumpy anthem "In the Valley" is insanely catchy. Come early, stay late.
