Tonight at Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg, Insound, who is known for being the BEST indie retailer online, is celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary! The doors open early at 6, and there is free beer until 8pm. Amongst the bands playing are The Drums, Real Estate, These are Powers and Cymbals Eat Guitars. There is also a special ‘TBA’ band on the bill that still hasn’t leaked. Who can it be? I’m not sure but if the announced lineup is that good, the TBA band is going to blow your mind. Tickets are 10 dollars at the door to get in. Arrive early and stay late. Who doesn’t like to party?
How have I gone the whole summer without hearing The Drums ‘Let’s Go Surfing’? The infectious band from Brooklyn who started to earn a buzz after CMJ 2008 are breaking out even more outside of the New York area. The band will be playing Insound’s 10th Year Anniversary party with Cymbals Eats Guitar on Thursday night in Brooklyn, and the band is also slated to played CMJ on October 21st at Santo’s House Party. ‘Let’s Go Surfing’ is by far the catchiest song I’ve heard in a while and it will surely have you hooked. Jonathan Pierce and Adam Kessler also played in the short lived band, Elkland, who released one album on Columbia before splitting up. The Drums seem to be going further than Elkland ever has….and we like it.
The Drums release their first EP on September 15th.
