+ Charly Bliss
Fri 10/27/2017 (7pm/$25)
Canada’s Wolf Parade (Arlen Thompson, Dante DeCaro, Dan Boeckner, and Spencer Krug) is back with their first album in seven years (the band went dark in 2010 and only recently reemerged)!
Wolf Parade’s Cry Cry Cry came out earlier this month on Sub Pop.
Show up early to check out New York’s Charly Bliss. Their debut Soft Serve EP will be reissued on vinyl in November via Barsuk Records.
We previously caught Charly Bliss at July 2015 and May 2012 and wrote, “Hendricks and band came out charging for their forty-five minute set, with the opening ‘Percolator’, she vocally kickboxing into the song with a girlish, slightly squeaky vocal, instead of actually kickboxing as she does in the music video of the song.”
