TONIGHT: BLACKMARKET @ The Viper Room
TONIGHT @ The Viper Room, get down and check out BLACKMARKET from Arizona. These kids are hotly tipped right now, so it should be a weasel fest. Songs are pretty strong, worth seeing if the live show stands up.
Here's some band info off their myspace page:
Blackmarket formed out of lake havasu city, Arizona in 2003. With a truly unique sound they've been compared to bands like the Clash with a smooth mixture of dance, radio ready and artistic creativity. In regards to the latter they draw comparisons to the Cure and U2. At live performances one notes the floating guitars backed by an excellent rhythm section and Bono/Robert Smith like vocals illiciting concert goers to sing along. Look for songs like "Indigo" and "Bad Call" and "Colors" to attract label attention. The band is comprised of Daryl Lamont (vocals, guitar), Jason Brindis (guitar, keyboards), Mikey Emerson (bass), and Langdon Chieffo (drums).
