ATTENTION: Cool band alert!!
This is Many Birthdays, a band we saw last night at Club DeVille. The guy lead singer (he switches off with one of the ladies) sounds exactly like Frank Black from The Pixies to me, except with synthesizers/Fruity Loops for backing rather than a big ol' bass guitar. They have an EP out right now that looks like this:
You can buy it here, which I think I am about to do right now.
If you have a weakness for synthesizers (me me!) then you'll dig some Many Birthdays. And what better place to hear synthesizers than Beauty Bar?? They are playing there in two weeks on November 1 - a Saturday night so pretty rad billing - and although I'm not sure who is playing with them yet I'll throw up a poster if they/Beauty Bar designs one.
Have you guys heard of Many Birthdays? Anyone going to this show? Moreover: Do you like synthesizers??
