Another dope live act at the pill tonight, as fiery Brooklyn/Boston indie pop kids the Toothaches drop by our little dance party at Great Scott. While I feel like I abandoned quirky indie pop a long time ago, these boys and girls have the goods, and provide a old-skool pill break from the waves of synthpop bands we've been having. The quickshot bio from the pill boston dot com:
After weeks of sitting in the lobby of the proverbial dentist’s office, the pill gets its indie pop filling this Friday as we welcome the Toothaches to our saccharine-soaked Great Scott stage. Like My Favorite on a frenetic meth binge or Belle & Sebastian in an alleyway knifefight, the Brooklyn-based but Boston-bred Toothaches have brought a much needed ferocity to the indie pop genre. The local press has been succumbing to twee-bit -cavities since the band released its debut EP straight out its Jamaica Plain kitchen last year, and their recent 7-inch release party with Pretty & Nice sent GS into a pogo-pop frenzy, marking cardigans as gang colors and glockenspiels as gats. Do not fuck with the Toothaches.
