Show Preview - SUPERCUTE w/ Kate Nash - 3.21.13 - Mr Smalls - Concert Preview

SUPERCUTE will be opening for Kate Nash next Thursdsay, 3.21 at Mr Smalls. The all female pop group is based out of NYC and has been riding a wave of buzz in the blogoshphere. Rachel Trachtenburg (of the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players - saw them way back in 2000) founded SUPERCUTE in 2009 with friend Julia Cumming. Trachtenburg, veteran of the indie rock scene at 19, has been playing drums in her family band since she was six years old. The band creates bubble gum pop with intentionally amusing lyrics that are framed around stories about animal rights and their love of candy.

From their press:

The girls of SUPERCUTE raised their own money via KickStarter to record their first full length album produced by Kate Nash in London. The album showcases the dreamy, psychedelic, dark direction that their sound has evolved into, incorporating complex instrumentation and harmonies that have become one of the group’s signatures. The combination of SUPERCUTE’s underground attitude and Nash’s pop intellect created the album “DON’T PoP MY BUBBLE’’ to be released on Secret Code Records distributed by The Frenchkiss Label Group.

Since SUPERCUTE's inception, the band has created quite the stir, garnering an impressive array of raves from respected media outlets like The New York Times, The New York Post, Time Out New York and The New Yorker. They’ve been blogged about by Teen Vogue, featured in a full 2-page spread in Bust, and were named Deli Magazine's "Band of the Month" for April 2010. They have played alongside artists such as Adam Green, The Shaggs, John Spencer Blues Explosion, The N’ere Dowells, Ira Glass, Janeane Garofalo, R. Stevie Moore, and Jeffrey Lewis. They have also performed at SXSW, the CMJ conference, at the 92nd Street, and at such big venues as the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) New York’s Bowery Ballroom, Music Hall of Williamsburg, Minneapolis’s First Avenue and the Los Angeles’s El Rey Theater.

The show begins at 8p with doors at 7p. Tickets are $10 and can be found here.
