Tonight: Freelance Whales @ Pianos

CMJ darlings Freelance Whales are playing Pianos tonight. This band was without a doubt my favorite discovery during CMJ.

They're fucking adorable. They kinda sound like Arcade Fire but much more childish and I mean that in a good, no great, way. They sound like a kids version of Arcade Fire and look like a whole band of Matt & Kims, all smiles - all the time. When I first saw them I turned do my friend and said "I have the sudden urge to go see Where The Wild Things Are" meaning they are a live soundtrack to a childhood adventure.

I know none of this makes any sense but go see them and you'll get what I'm driving at. If they can figure out how to properly mic these kids on a big stage they will be huge.

That said, they're playing what might just be their last little NYC show, depending on how this tour goes. I'd suggest going to this one. $10 sucks but it's worth it in this case.
