Bishop Allen, Tonight At Satellite Ballroom
BISHOP ALLEN will be playing tonight at the Satellite Ballroom with +/- and SAY HI TO YOUR MOM.
Doors open at 8pm and tickets are $8.
Bishop Allen is a great Brooklyn band, whose mellow tunes take the current stream of indie rock and bring it back to its roots, where basic creativity with drums, vocals, and guitars takes precedence over synthetic pop.
Now you might ask why OFFScreen is advertising this specific show...and the answer is quite simple. You might recognize the mug of one Justin Rice in the image shown above (front left). Rice played the protagonist, who ironically is named "Alan," in Andrew Bujalski's Mutual Appreciation, which OFFScreen showed a few months back. In fact, if you came to see the film, you've already heard quite a few of Bishop Allen's tunes, as "Alan" plays them as his own in the film.
Also, if you liked Mutual Appreciation, or are just really into Bishop Allen, also check out Andrew Bujalski's freshman film Funny Ha Ha, which features Bishop Allen's other lead singer Christian Rudder(front right in above image)in one of the lead roles. Both titles are available on DVD at Sneak Reviews.
