Check out Artspace Underground this Saturday

50 Orange St, New Haven, (203) 772-2709
Artspace Underground
Sat., Mar. 27, 8—11 p.m., Admission $5, Drinks $6

(Normally, I don't do posts on performance events as they are generally outside the parameters of what this blog is about. But I attended my first Artspace Underground event last month and was quite impressed. According to Liza Statton, Artspace curator and interim executive director, each one is different. The February Underground featured some cool avant-garde noise music early on, a standup comedian and an indie rock band. This month's Underground will feature a couple of indie pop bands and—correct me if I'm wrong—a neo-burlesque dancer. Very au courant. It's a scene well worth checking out. Hank)

Press release

Throw away those parkas. Spring has officially sprung! Come out and celebrate the warmer weather with us on Sat., Mar. 27 from 8—11 p.m.

On Mar. 27, listen to two bands plus watch a pole dancer! The Smittens, a five-piece indie pop band, come to us from Burlington, Vermont and like to regard themselves as a do-it-yourself twee explosion of hyper-catchy songs of all colors, shapes and sizes.

New Haven's own The Wee Bees (Web) similarly embrace the DIY-aesthetic that gave birth to some of our greatest creative inspirations (the C86 compilation; Sarah, K, Matador and Slumberland Records) and craft pop songs that span the gamut from jangly verse-chorus-verse structure, tremolo-heavy shoegaze, and sweet lullabies to experimental jaunts.

Sugar Magnolia brings her Cabaret-style charm, and she'll dance throughout the evening. As always, 116 Crown serves you drinks, and guest-DJ Sofia Cavallo spins. Artspace Underground enlivens downtown.

Come ready to dance, laugh, and celebrate spring—$5 admission and $6 dollar drinks.
