January 20th, 2015 · No Comments · By

Indie Rock. Tonight (1/20) @ 8 pm. Tea Bazaar. $5. You can’t beat these prices.

Kindergarden:

There are some bands who rock too hard (a good thing), and some bands who rock just enough (also a good thing). Call them “rock-teases.” They are like the smart girl who never takes her bra off during sex, but you love her anyway. The result is tight, well-composed jams with subtle breakdowns and melodies. Kindergarden will keep you coming back. Check out this soundcloud track. https://soundcloud.com/jwt2761/ellapreview. It’s an excerpt. Another tease, but gets my point across nicely.

Feral Conservatives:

A two-piece from Virginia Beach, features sped-up mandolin folk songs layered over a noisy indie/college rock background—a background which will occassionally rise up and take over. Approachable vocals. They also have a soundcloud with many songs. So, check it out. https://soundcloud.com/feralconservatives. Also, bandcamp: http://feralconservatives.bandcamp.com/.

French Admirals:

A new trio of experienced song-writers from D.C., bring us some mid-tempo indie rock with a mellow sentiment. Jilted, but not bitter about it. Nuanced, but digestible. Guitar sounds vary from an acoustic, singer-songwrite vibe, to rock with the occasional tasteful guitar solo. Check out their bandcamp: http://frenchadmirals.bandcamp.com/releases.
