When the Sad Little Stars Come Out to Play
Earplugs 2$ it says at the door to Piano's main concert space, and you should take this as a piece of advice: It's damn loud in there. No place to take a date to, unless you want to scream into each others ears, or when the Sad Little Stars perform, cause then you both will be moved so much by the music that everything will be good. Guaranteed. And they are only getting better, growing together as a rocking five piece, swinging punk and beastie boyish hooks, with Rachel's bright smile stealing the show and Max' charming understatement. He says the new record is out in 6 weeks, which in my opinion is 36 days too long. Expect diamonds of songs, and a band that is obviously having so much fun on stage, it's a pleasure just to watch, let alone listen, even if the sound is as overpowered as it was at Piano's. Let's hope for brilliant sound and stars tonite at Europa in Greenpoint!
