Skidmore Student Entertainment Company's BIG SPRING SHOW
Skidmore College's Student Entertainment Company is proud to present JFK of MSTRKRFT and The Walkmen with The Postelles.
JFK started off playing in a number of different Toronto based bands, his best known projects being Black Cat #13 and Death from Above 1979. Black Cat toured with The Locust and released several, now collectible, 7" records. Once Black Cat split, he formed his own 7-piece music project, Femme Fatale. Though the live band broke up, Keeler recorded all 3 of the released EPs himself, which were produced by longtime friend Al Puodziukas, with whom he would later go on to form MSTRKRFT.
The Walkmen is a rock band formed in New York in 2000. In the late 90's, the guys constructed an analogue recording studio in an abandoned Nash Rambler factory in west Harlem, where they self-recorded their first album, Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me is Gone. Three of the members now reside in Brooklyn, and two have moved on to the cheaper pastures of Philadelphia. The band has released 4 albums of original material--including 2008's You and Me, which still sounds as fresh as the day it was conceived. The band has travelled extensively around the world in the last 8 years, but has always called New York home.
On The Postelles:
SPIN: "The Postellesserve up a hooked-at-the-gills, head-bobbing rock'n'roll groove. And nowhere is their sound as refined as ..," the band's swaying new single featuring the production workof Strokes axeman Albert Hammond Jr."
Pitchfork:"Admittedly, the Motown-via-treble guitars still get my foot in action. It's a weakness. And, in the hands of the Postelles, it's also a strength."
