Cars Can Be Blue and The Lovely Eggs with School Safety Patrol @ Two Boots — Thurs., Sept. 10

CCBB

Athens, Ga., popsters Cars Can Be Blue will perform with European pop duo The Lovely Eggs, Thursday, Sept. 10 at Two Boots, 281 Fairfield Ave., Bridgeport. Connecticut pop duo School Safety Patrol will also perform.

Cars Can Be Blue, from Athens, Ga., play simple, fun, catchy songs that combine bubblegum pop with a satirical, sometimes even naughty sense of humor. Think Dressy Bessy with Sarah Silverman singing, Tullycraft meets Adam Sandler, Beat Happening meets Tenacious D. Now you’re getting the idea. How do they do it? It all comes from the unique chemistry of Nate Mitchell and Becky Brooks.

Cars Can Be Blue started during the summer of 2002 after the dissolution of Nate’s cover band and Becky’s improv comedy group. Cars Can Be Blue have shared stages with bands like Mates of State, The Lucksmiths, Jason Anderson/Wolf Colonel and xBxRx, stand-up comedians Eugene Mirman and Bobby Tisdale and even warmed crowds up for the hilarious Found Footage Film Festival.

The Lovely Eggs are a pop duo from Lancaster, UK. They like to play music together and share a drink. Holly likes books and historical things. David doesnt like books and historical things so much. He prefers cine light shows and fixing things that are broken.

The music of the Lovely Eggs is mainly influenced by “the ecstasy of the modern mind and all its trappings.” They site such bands as The Velvet Underground, Daniel Johnston, Red Crayola, Sonic Youth, Scout Niblett, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, he Modern Lovers and the Moldy Peaches as influences.

School Safety Patrol is one of the many musical incarnations of Peter and Julie of the Sawtelles and Poptelles. They play Ramones-inspired punk pop on a fuzzed out electric uke and modified drum kit. Peter and Julie can be seen playing all over the state of CT from farmer’s markets to rock shows.

Cars Can Be Blue and The Lovely Eggs will perform with School Safety Patrol Thursday, Sept. 10 at Two Boots, 281 Fairfield Ave., Bridgeport. This is an all ages show, but lyrical content is for mature audiences. Music begins at 9 p.m. $5.

Really big show!

CCBB-Unbeatable

Tweefort has just confirmed some pretty big shows for September. Clear your calendar for the first two weeks of the month, because we’ve got lots going on and you’re not going to want to miss it.

We’re really, really excited to have just confirmed Cars Can Be Blue from Athens, GA for Thurs., Sept. 10 at Two Boots in Bridgeport. Get ready for cute, potty-mouthed indiepop goodness. Touring with CCBB will be The Lovely Eggs from Lancaster, UK. We’ll also have another band TBA. This is going to be a great show.

Tuesday, Sept. 8 we’ll have another great show at Cafe Nine in New Haven. Yeah, I know it’s a Tuesday, but what else are you going to do? Come out and hear some good music. This show will be FREE. We’ll have New Haven’s own Eula, who need no introduction. We’ll also have Cleemann, who hails from Denmark, playing some Radiohead-ish solo music. Cleemann will be in the states for the Nebraska Pop Festival, and we’re pretty psyched we’ll be able to get him a show. There’ll be another band TBA as well.

Starting the month off right, Thurs., Sept. 3, we’ll have two European bands and one hometown hero at Cafe Nine. Labrador hails from Denmark and Germany. You’ll want to hear this guitar and bass duo sing their brand of loungy indiepop. Lisa Bouvier, from Sweden, spends a lot of her time in a great band called Stars In Coma, but we’ll have her with her own backing band. She sings some really fun, up-tempo indiepop that will get your head bobbing — it might even get your feet moving. Rounding out the line-up will be the solo debut and CD release of New Haven music veteran Steve Deal. We’re really excited to be able to host Steve … his new solo stuff is great and it sounds like the influences run the gamut from Buddy Holly to Cheap Trick. Be sure to come out and support Steve.

Don’t forget about our shows in August as well … August 7 will be the Tweefort compilation release show with Conversion Party, Boy Genius, Welcome and The Bynars. August 27 we’ll be at Surf Nite! at Two Boots getting down to some good surf-inspired garage pop with The Mystery Lights and The Villains.

We’re really glad to be able to bring all this great pop music to Southern CT — now get out of your house and enjoy it.
