TWEENS/ JAILL/ RADIO BURNS @ Lager House 4/9
Tweens are a trash pop trio hailing from Cincinnati Ohio, comprised of Bridget Battle (Vox/Gtr), Peyton Copes (Bass), and Jerri Queen (Drums/BG Vox). Since their formation in May 2012, they have gone from pumping out old doo wop songs and demos in their basement to touring with The Breeders and making a name for themselves in just a years time. Blown out with an exploding intensity and full of sugary sweet hooks, Tweens just finished work on their debut LP with Eli Janney, and it will be released March of 2014 on Frenchkiss Records.

Jaill is a lot like other bands; they've slept on your floor, you've made fun of their pillow cases, they're not nearly as good at Excitebike as they said they were and although they all say they're cool with cats, no one's excited about sleeping at the cat house. So it should come as no surprise that, as bands sometimes do, they've made a new record. And that record is Traps, their second for Sub Pop, but first to adopt the bold new marketing strategy of giving away a free pair of Nike cross-trainers to anyone who steals it on the internet. Take that, Radiohead. So, but, what is Traps? And what about it can best fill five paragraphs? Traps is pretty, it's moody, it pops. It has the scrappy, vengeful enthusiasm of a puppy stuck under a blanket. It's an adorably grumpy bear just awoken from his long winter's slumber, with a mangy heart rarely found outside of the stuffed animal bin of a Salvation Army. It's an album that expects to be taken seriously goddammit, even though it just puked on the bar.
Detroit rock'n'roll the way it oughta be done. Former members of The Dirtys, Millions of Brazilians, The Suicide Machines and Frank & Jesse. Tough, street-wise, no nonsense music for the true believers.
