More Sound Fix Instores for May

Sound Fix updated their website with more May in-store performances. Art Brut is probably the one that most people are going to be buzzing about, but I can't stand them. Baby Dayliner on May 20th is the one I'm most interested in. BD hooked me up with a demo of his new album, Critics Pass Away, a while ago and it is just as funky as High Heart & Low Estate. Was at Pianos for Benzos Unplugged (which kicked serious ass) and he was doing his dance party right afterward. Haven't seen him live yet, but he is one hell of a DJ and seemed like an all around rad guy. Listen to some of the new songs at his Myspace.

Here's the list of in-stores:

Saturday, May 6, 4pm
Eef Barzeley
The Clem Snide frontman returns to Sound Fix to play some songs from his fine new solo record.

Care to elaborate?

The Art Bruts bring the love!

First of all, I'll admit that I have never seen them live, and that my opinion is based purely on what I've heard off Bang Bang Rock & Roll.

I listen to WOXY because I like 90% of the music that they play. I rarely find myself turning the volume down when they play something I don't like. Art Brut falls in that other 10% and I don't turn the volume down, I usually end up putting on KEXP (same with MIA). Just not my cup of tea.

Baby Dayliner is mesmerizing live. It is like someone who took karaoke way too seriously.

Secondly, no one should judge Art Brut from Bang Bang Rock and Roll. I've heard the album and think it's terrible. What sold me on them was the appearance on BBC Rocket Science where they did a live in-studio performance (I think One Louder linked to it a few months back). Anyhow, I think even Eddie has publicly stated that he doesn't like BBRnR.
