The first official weekend banger of 2k18. After a slow stretch of weekends, we're back. with Porches. Plus, TYGAPAW and lots of cool on-campus bands making their spring semester debuts!
Porches (+ Goo and Girltype Behaviors and Kfeelz)
Movement House // Friday 8:30 PM
Porches is one of the most important indie rock bands in recent memory. Formed in 2010, the band gained significant exposure in early 2016 with the release of Pool, an indie-electronic album that maintained singer/songwriter Aaron Maine’s signature intimate DIY styling while also being irresistibly danceable. Porches’ newest release, The House, creeps closer to pop than any of Maine’s prior releases at times, but stays grounded in themes of anxiety and loneliness.
Goo are sneaky, sick, and strictly surreal. They’re back for the semester, so expect more well-written, hard-not-to-love tunes from them.
Girltype Behaviors are post-punk, unparalleled, and support cross-pollination.
Kfeelz brings the tunes you want and the energy you need.
Saint Something is Anjali Desai '20 on vivacious vocals and baller bass, Ginger Hutchinson '20 on krazy keys, Carina Rosenbach '20 on that goodgood guitar, and Luisa Bryan '21 on dank drums. Carina is gluten-free.
