Conversion Party @ Rudy's
Saturday, May 9th
Rudy’s, New Haven
Here's the band's self-description:
Conversion Party features a mishmash of rock and roll. From deranged Motown numbers to balls to the wall punk to tender ballads, we're basically a mess. Anyway, we're made up of members of Fatal Film, Ringers and the now-defunct and very short-lived Megalomaniac. So who is Conversion Party? Who else but guitar mad man (who plays just about every instrument at some point in this band) Matt Potter from Fatal Film; Ben Johnson, (who now lives in Brooklyn, NY), Matt Clarke & Matt Allen - members of the long time NL band, Ringers. Rounding out the band is Alex Waxman, who also resides in Brookyn, NY.
That's probably as close of a description as you can get! From what I've heard listening to their myspace, they're a mix of danceable indie pop with walls of crazy garage sound. They sound really similar to early Strokes or Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! That's a great thing to sound like.
The cost of this show is $3 at the door.
Rudy's is at 372 Elm St, New Haven, Connecticut 06511
