Sharing is Caring
The Bowery and Terminal West present:
79.5 | SadGirl | DJ set by La Choloteca
Disco’s revenge plot may be nearly complete (Justin Timberlake’s unctuous “Can’t Stop the Feeling” aside). The honeyed vocalists, street flautists, and psych guitarists of 79.5, who play Bowery Ballroom on July 30, roused the sound with a 2012 release, “Boogie”/“OOO,” which has been making the rounds ever since. The septet rocks and glints like New York Harbor’s Clipper City schooner—they’ve spent the summer performing from the boat’s deck, on sold-out night cruises from Battery Park to Red Hook. A throbbing new 45, “Terrorize My Heart,” lands on Sept. 16.
But now, the lo-fi, surf-wop trio is making waves. Proclaimed one of LA's Hardest-Working Bands by Oh My Rockness, SadGirl delivers an iconic, "DIY" package of sound and image, complete with logo and merch designs equally fashionable and punk-rock.
Like a twisted marriage between Roy Orbison and The Cramps (ordained by Link Wray) SadGirl invokes the music of a by-gone era. But don't be fooled, these aren't the tunes from Uncle Jimmy's juke box...
