It's fall, and time to break out the flannel, switch it up to whiskey, and get intense. Well, maybe not just yet since it was 80 degrees yesterday and people were totally rocking shorts and flip flops at the Asher Roth show I was at last night (don't ask) but you get the idea. And no band, in my opinion, is more appropriate for sweater weather than my recent obsession - Tidal Arms.
I fell in love with Tidal Arms a few months ago when they played night two of Miracles of Modern Science's residency at Cake Shop (which I also presented). I was sitting in the back "djing"/eating a taco from San Loco and as soon as they started playing I turned to my friend and was like "I really like this." After a minute or two, we both were basically freaking out about how fucking good they were. NYC Taper was there, and felt the exact same way - he even used the words "kick ass," a very appropriate descriptor. Their music is heavy without sacrificing any intricacies, pretty much the musical equivalent of the perfect storm.
Best part - they are playing TONIGHT at Union Hall alongside Bird Love and James the Miserable. 8pm. Get all the show info HERE.
