This is a past event.

Darwin Deez, Fol Chen and Friends 

When: Wed., Jan. 26, 8:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $10-12
We all hide behind something. Fol Chen are a secretive clan of artistic electro-prog rockers who keep their identities a secret in band photos—onstage in their coordinated pastel outfits they are far more transparent—yet create a complex, open-ended sound that is both inviting and warm (like getting a hug from Liars). Darwin Deez chooses to hide out in the open behind a Ned Flanders mustache and limp perm, the pair of which is either appealing or appalling, all depending on your acceptance of vaguely ironic facial hair. But beyond the 'stache, Deez's bouncy pop songs are unassuming in nature, yet absolutely infectious to the ear, a simple formula the hyperactive New York singer has mastered. Songs this good won't stay hidden for long. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
