Booking newcomers Tweefort deliver a coup de grâce to the last of winter. Here's what they've rolled out:
Brooklyn-based indie band Strega will perform Thursday, March 19 at Cafe Nine. Joining Strega will be Bloomfield, CT-based indie band Color Change. Strega — currently signed to Miami, FL label Cloudberry Records — cites such bands as New Order, The Smiths, Depeche Mode, The Wake and The Shins as influences on their new wave/ electro-pop sound. The band includes Stephen Vesecky — previously of the band Poundsign — with Liz Wilcox on keyboards, Kyona Watts on bass and vocals, James Bell on drums and “JP,” also on drums. Strega recently released a Christmas single, “When the Stars are Shining Bright at Christmastime,” on the Cloudberry Records EP, “Last Train to Christmas.” Cloudberry Records also released Strega’s 3-song single. The band is continually writing music and will release an album on Nebraska-based label Series Two Records. Indie band Color Change is a local guitar and drum duo. They cite pop and folk acts as influences, but say they are also often compared to rock and noise acts such as Lightning Bolt. Color Change has played with such bands as Future Islands, Daniel Striped Tiger, Talk Normal and Chiaroscuro, to name a few. A fairly new band, Color Change has brought a lot of attention to the Bloomfield indie scene. For more information about Strega: CLICK. For more information about Color Change: CLICK.
