Midi & The Modern Dance, Cold Snap - House Show
One of Connecticut's best young bands, Midi & The Modern Dance is playing an intimate house show in Easton this coming Saturday, January 30. The band is preparing for the release of their second record "Make It Easy on Yourself" as well as a split 7" with Suns, who are also playing this show.
It's always nice to go to a show and see 4 or 5 bands that don't sound exactly alike playing together. Diversity in show lineups is a beautiful thing when executed properly and this show is a fantastic example of that. Hardcore band Cold Snap (who put out a 7'' on Hot Air Press this past November) will treat all attendees to an emotional set. If seeing one of the the most refreshingly original hardcore bands in the state doesn't intrigue you, maybe the possibility of a Life of Agony cover will.
New Year's Revolution are a 3 piece folk punk band with a cellist! The band is from Danbury and New Haven and have been active members of the DIY scene for a while now. With their raw talent and unmistakeable ability to write a damn catchy song, 2010 promises to be a big year for NYR.
Rounding out the bill are Martin Luther King and Richard Trenton Chase and to be frank, I know nothing about either of these acts. But you might as well check them out, considering the rest of the bill is so strong.
