Next Saturday will be the first (and hopefully not the last) teaming of Tweefort with New Haven’s Safety Meeting Records. Come out to Rudy’s for cheap beer, great frites and three pop bands — La Strada, M.T. Bearington and The Fictional West.
Chances are you already know M.T. Bearington, and if not, you used to like one of their old bands. However, if that’s not the case, M.T. Bearington makes driving psych-pop music that’s sure to get under your skin and make a home in your head. The band is also getting ready to head out on a mini-tour with none other than Mates of State.
La Strada makes undeniably charming pop music that’s a little chamber pop, a little indie pop and a whole lotta fun. It’s rare to see strings and accordion on stage at Rudy’s, so don’t miss out.
The Fictional West have a single out now on Tweefort Records. They’re getting comparisons to Orange Juice, The Magnetic Fields and The Smiths. Limited by their non-fictional surroundings, these New Haven natives decided to combine their varied interests in indie pop, 80s new wave sounds and satirical themes into some nice low-key tunes. Go download the single if you haven’t yet.
Saturday, FEB. 6: La Strada, M.T. Bearington and The Fictional West
