If you want to think of it this way, tonight’s show at Tea Bazaar is the last pre-Hopscotch party before the entire town makes a mass exodus for Raleigh. I’m kind of joking, but, like, I’m already there. Actually, though, this Tea Bazaar show is the last one for every single band on the bill […]

Today is the first day of August, also known as the first day of the last month of summer. We’ve all had our fun living in a shitty sublet with no windows, looking up graduate programs and crying, and preparing to move back into our parents’ house. But now it’s time to really enjoy these […]

Tea Bazaar music tonight; new Left & Right music video

July 11th, 2013 · 2 Comments · By

At the Tea Bazaar tonight: Other Colors from Baltimore, who play “exploratory pop” and “future folk-rock.” Their 2011 self-titled album sounds like old-school bedroom recordings: lo-fi production, pop slightly less cracked than Ariel Pink, and to me almost a 60s vibe reminiscent of folkie weirdos like Syd Barrett or Pearls Before Swine.
