Tape and Wire//Teenage Pricks

[Local! Music! Friday!]

Tell me...what is this Local Music Fridays?

Ok, if the Folk Implosion track from a few days ago was about wanting to grow up and get the hell out, this song is speaking to the exact opposite—it’s all about hanging on to that youthful feeling of fresh exuberance for life and no consequences. And that’s fun! Foils! Not just for high school English class anymore!

Tape and Wire is the band of friend (and…ahem!...colleague) Chris Avello. Here’s something I like about them a lot: they’re catchy, but you can feel the 90s indie aesthetic permeating from the music. Is it coincidence that what I always want to listen to next is Archers of Loaf or Unrest? This is downright respectable!!!

Here’s what’s more: Tape and Wire play a rare show and release their album tomorrow night at Bushwick’s own indie institution, Goodbye Blue Monday. My band is also joining in the fun (sar, SSP!!!).

FRIDAY! Like it’s 1994!
