Tag "No Joy"

I’ve seen a bunch of shows already this year, some good, some bad. In the last two weeks or so it’s been the openers that have impressed me more than the headliners. Here are three bands you should show up early to see when they come to your town:

Young Prisms

I saw these guys open for The Radio Dept and I really liked their hazey/shoegazey sound. Their debut album, Friends For Now, is out now on Kanine Records.

No Joy

No Joy opened up the Best Coast / Wavves show last week at the 9:30 and were my favorite band on the bill. Be sure to check out their album Ghost Blonde.

I saw Braids on Friday opening for Baths and was smitten by their sound, a cross between High Places quirky rhythms and Glasser’s vocals. Their debut album, Native Speaker, is out now, also on Kanine Records.
