WE WILL BE GIVING AWAY FIVE COPIES OF THE GOTOBEDS’ “New York’s Alright” 7″ AT THE SHOW — STAY TUNED FOR CONTEST DETAILS!
“THE GOTOBEDS‘ members come from Pittsburgh, PA, a place notorious for keeping great local bands to itself. But the racket these guys kick up on their first album, Poor People Are Revolting, might be too strong for the city to contain. Guitarists Eli Kasan and Tom Payne spent the last few years as part of the local hardcore band Kim Phuc. Joined by bassist Gavin Jensen and drummer Cary Belbeck, they bring that energy to THE GOTOBEDS, a rowdy, ramshackle party house of a band, built on the intersecting bedrock of post-punk and indie rock. On Poor People Are Revolting, there’s something crazy going on in every room, the front porch and the backyard: a party that never dies down or seems to stop, even as the neighbors complain and the cops drive past. Working from the spirit and fundamentals of a small handful of influences — the design sense and intellectual rowdiness of The Fall; the constant evolution and masterful poker faces of Wire, from whose drummer these guys borrowed their name; the sturdy, heroic melodic sense and layered tape-loop production of Mission of Burma — THE GOTOBEDS paint a dirty, driven, vulgar portrait of Rust Belt restlessness.
“One of the strongest American rock debuts in years, Poor People Are Revolting is an obscene gesture hoisted toward anyone who’d claim that the genre is dead.” — NPR.
OCIFER is “an up and coming garage rock band that you want to become a fan of before everyone else does.”
