The Babies
$5

After releasing two 7-inch singles last year, the Babies are readying their self-titled full-length record, set to come out on February 8 on Shrimper Records. If you haven't heard either of the singles yet—and you should, they're both terrific—you have surely heard music by members of the Babies before: Cassie Ramone is singer and guitarist for the famed Vivian Girls, while Kevin Morby is bassist for Woods. Ramone and Morby started off as roommates and have now become a fully functioning band, rounded out by drummer Justin Sullivan and bassist Nathanael Stark. While much has been made of the Babies' cross-pollination of Vivian Girls' sparkly garage jangle and Woods' woolly folk-rock, it's an accurate approximation of their dizzying, delightful sound. This is the first don't-miss rock show of the new year. NED LANNAMANN
