Don't Sleep SD...

Soooo, Rose has been sweet enough to invite me to start posting on her blog and I have decided that one of my contributions will be to notify the sddialedin readers of upcoming shows that YOU REALLY SHOULD NOT MISS. Some of these bands will be obscure and you might think their names sound funny or the MP3 you find of them just isn't doing it for you, but at the end of the day I, I bet that if you go and check them out you will be pleasantly surprised and possibly even have your mind blown away!!! So, next Friday, July 25th, if you have nothing better to do, I STRONGLY recommend going to see Hercules & Love Affair at The Casbah. This is a great band from Brooklyn, NYC; mostly the creation of mastermind producer DJ Andy Butler, but very much a joint collaboration with 2 very talented songstresses (Nomi & Kim Ann Foxman) and Antony Hegarty (from Antony & The Johnsons, although I'm not positive he tours with them, but that doesn't matter because they're still awesome!). They are on the DFA label who is notorious for ousting disco/dance/electronic juggernauts (The Rapture & LCD Soundsystem amongst others) to the unknowing general public and their live shows have been getting really great reviews from critics across the country. Long story short, if you like to dance, enjoy a good beat and are ready for something different, GO SEE THIS BAND. What? What's that??? Oh, you have shit to do at 7pm? Will it's a late show bitches, that's right, 10pm, show up with a buzz and that hot, tattooed barista you've been dying to impress but didn't know how and get your groove on! See you there.
