Bad Veins - Pittsburgh - Club Cafe - 10/5/09 - Reminder

As previously mentioned this week Bad Veins will be playing this Monday at Club Cafe. They are touring with The Subjects out of NYC and are being sponsored by Daytrotter Sessions. It's the late show at 10:15p. We previously reviewed their concert at Garfield Artworks and are definitely looking forward to seeing them at Club Cafe (if you like what you hear they are even better live).

I am re-posting the previous album review below along with their video to 'Gold and Warm'.

Bad Veins is a duo hailing from Cincinnati who are on Dangerbird Records (Silversun Pickups, Eulogies, The Dears) and just came out with their first self titled lp in July. The album is a multi layered affair with distorted vocals that pounce through. There is your usual drum plus guitar, but the sound is much stronger than your typical two piece. They get compared to Franz Ferndinand and Pulp which you can hear, but doesn't really represent them entirely. "Found" starts the album off with clarinets and trombones mixed in with the drums and guitar. Its a slower tune than what you find on the rest of the album. "Gold and Warm" is Bad Veins song that grabs you from the get go with a few hooks. The album continues down this same path with a theme of storytelling about life's experiences and encounters.
