Super-Fun Dance-time Monday!

June 28th, 2009 · 4 Comments · By

Fun show at the Tea Bazaar tomorrow evening. I think I fairly nailed my description of Athens, GA’s Ear Pwr in an earlier write-up:

Ear Pwr are probably the twee-est damn thing I’ve ever heard. Which is surprisingly great. They’ve just embraced the thing and run with it like crazy. With ridiculously adorable delivery and too-cute lyrics like “Sparkly, sparkly sweater // you’re my favorite, you’re my favorite, you’re my favorite favorite shirt” it’s hard not to instantly crush on this band. Plus you’ve got all the requisite jingly, bleepy, bloopy, and highly danceable backing tracks appropriate for an 8-year-old’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles birthday party at LaserQuest. It’s sooo overboard!

So that’s pretty much the story on Ear Pwr. Touring partner Adventure is a one-man Nintendo-core electronic act out of Baltimore’s Wham City scene. And starting out the night at 9PM sharp are Bear War, a brand new C-ville based duo, who I expect will be a lot of fun and fit right into the electronic fun-time theme of the evening.

I’ll try to keep things running a little on the early side since I know folks will either be trying to hit the sack for the following work day or head over to The Box for James’ DJ set in a timely manner.

Show is $6 $5, BTDubs.

UPDATE: Sorry folks, turns out Adventure is actually not playing tonight. Not sure what exactly the deal is, but I gather this is one of several shows that got cancelled. Tour fatigue? Anyway, still gonna be a great show… I’ll make it a $5 cover instead of $6, if that’s some consolation.
