Lisa Bouvier, of the Swedish indie pop band Stars in Coma, will perform with her own backing band Thursday, Sept. 3 at Café Nine, 250 State St., in New Haven, Conn. New Haven power pop outfit The Tyler Trudeau Attempt and Fairfield, Conn.’s The Hallways will also perform.
Lisa Bouvier, hailing from Malmö/Lund/Karlshamn, Sweden, plays infectious pop music that straddles the pop punk line. Covering such topics as love and longing, Bouvier and her band, The Pop Messengers, keep heads bobbing and toes tapping. A busy woman, Bouvier splits her time among multiple other bands, including indie pop blog darlings, Stars in Coma.
New Haven’s The Tyler Trudeau Attempt has been compared to Elvis Costello, Billy Bragg, The Ramones and Richard Hell. Really it’s just great power pop. They can be seen on stages all over the state of Connecticut.
The New Haven Advocate said the following about The Tyler Trudeau Attempt’s EP, “In My Despair I Took Up Painting”:
“[In My Despair, I Took Up Painting is] an EP brimming with social satire, gleeful punk music, enough organ for a prog band and Trudeau’s instantly recognizable whine… The TTA looks back to the roots of punk and finds something immensely energetic, often hilarious and always political. On top of that, it’s catchy as hell.”
The Hallways are a three-piece pop band from Fairfield that feature guitar, drums and a stand-up bass. Guitarist Nathan Hall writes and sings Smith’s-inspired pop tunes.
Lisa Bouvier will perform with The Tyler Trudeau Attempt and The Hallways, Thursday, Sept. 3 at Café Nine, 250 State St., New Haven, Conn. Doors open at 9 p.m. Music begins at 10 p.m. The show is free and 21+.
