PREVIEW: Boys, A Haircut, Soul Low, Dakotas

BOYS

This is how you spend a Sunday night in Madison.  Three excellent and fun local acts with a pleasantly matched traveling act.  Join us tomorrow night at the Dragonfly Lounge for another great set of bands.  Read on below for press quotes and streaming previews for each band.

BOYS, A Haircut, Soul Low, Dakotas
$5 Cover, 21+, Music at 9:00PM.

401 E. Washington



BOYS (MISSOULA)
“Moody fuzzed-out guitars and deceptively simple arrangements sound as if they were pulled from an AM radio during a late night try at coitus.” – Missoula Independent



A Haircut (MADISON)
“In the band A Haircut, Lutz yelps over fat, fuzzy guitar tones and Trester’s simple drum patterns. Titles on their eight-song demo include “Lizard Skin” and “A Native Scalping.” Before forming A Haircut, Lutz played in a Milwaukee folk duo called Audrea, which once covered Misfits’ “Last Caress,” singing about a baby’s death over cheerful tambourine and harmonica. Trester’s drum kit includes parts salvaged from the trash.” – Scott Gordon, The Daily Page



Soul Low (MADISON/MILWAUKEE)
“Soul Low is a three piece Indie/Rock band made up of Sam Gehrke, Jake Balistrieri & Charlie Celenaza. Based out of Milwaukee, the group seemed to come to a complete halt last year when Gehrke took of for school. But after a year of little activity Soul Low are making an exciting comeback with a slew of recent shows, new songs, & eleven day tour to the east coast.” – Mouse Corn, FunTV



Dakotas (MADISON)
“Dakotas represented the first Madison band of brothers (literally, two of the members are brothers) to take the stage, and they played a blaring set of American rock highly reminiscent of The Strokes circa Room on Fire.” – Jaime Brackeen, MadisonNightOut

PREVIEW: Lost City Winter Series #8

Lost City Winter Series

Feel that air warming up?  Spring is coming, and that means we’re nearing the end of our Lost City Winter Series.  That’s a bummer, but these last two shows are going to be great.  Tonight, from Madison, we have Jamie Yanda, Snouts and Fluorescent Pig.  Driving in from Milwaukee is YLLA.  This is our second-to-last Winter Series show, so I hope we’ll see you there!

BUZZ: Pushmi-Pullyu on Mixtapes|Heartbreaks

Mixtapes|Heartbreaks

As you may know, Pushmi-Pullyu has been working on new album – for a very long time.  Word is, that album is nearing completion.  (FINALLY!)

In related news, the Mixtapes|Heartbreaks blog recently featured Pushmi-Pullyu’s “In the Bleak Midwinter” in their March MP3 Roundup.  “In the Bleak Midwinter” was originally arranged for a performance a few years back on WYOU’s Just Say Ho! Telethon, which required local bands to play at least one holiday tune.  Pushmi-Pullyu chose an old Christmastime hymn, turning it into a sort-of love song.  (We then released it as mam233.)

Check out “In the Bleak Midwinter,” as well as Mixtapes|Heartbreaks’s other March picks here.  For updates on the album, follow the band on Facebook and/or Twitter.
