Here's a late-breaking addition that didn't make the music calendar in this week's paper: Pretty and Nice, a trio from Boston, have been added to the bill tonight at Berbati's Pan. Their music is chipper, pointy pop, with childlike lullaby twinkles sitting alongside furry lo-bit scuzz. Get Young is their second record, out now on Hardly Art, and its brief tunes whirl around a few fun musical ideas, then check out quickly before getting old. There's an old-school sense of melodicism in Pretty and Nice's ADD videogame rock, like Cole Porter let loose on some Pixelh8 software after downing a few bowls of Sugar Smacks. (There are three references I bet you didn't expect to see in one sentence!) Listen to a tune down below, then go to Pretty and Nice's website to stream all of Get Young. And then, hit the free show tonight.
