The Rialto Theater

Before I start reviewing the music - I think I should start off with a very necessary hats off to the staff at The Rialto Theater. I went up to the box office and someone had lost (or perhaps forgot to acquire) the guestlist. I waited there for a few minutes and the show was just beginning, so instead of having me wait there for however long, the box office woman said that my +1 and I could go in and she'll just cross off our names later whenever she gets the list.

Get A Grip:

The show began with local punks Get A Grip. Nothing but support for this group. Their demo became available on bandcamp just this June and will shortly be followed by a split 7" with Bedlam. Check out their site here! Overall they're a good act -- with a classic sound and a talented lyricist I anticipate more from this band in the coming year.

Wray
Being as I only caught the last 5 seconds of their set, I'm not really fit to say much about them. Those last five seconds sounded a bit shoe-gaze-y though.

Sallie Ford:

They were pretty fun. Sort of like an overdrive pedal set at 6. A good amount of clean, up-beat energy occasionally being driven over to the raspy/rough side.

Kodak To Graph

Club Congress

The opener for the show, Kodak To Graph, is 22 year old Michael Maleki's downtempo electronic music project. It was a fantastic opener. It seemed to me that Kodak's efforts went a little unappreciated because the tone of his set did not really match the mood of El Ten Eleven's music, but nevertheless, it was a great act. I think that what makes Kodak To Graph unique is his extreme adaptability and creativity. His opening mix was seamless, but still contained influences from an wide variety of producers including TNGHT, Flying Lotus, Keaver and Brause, and Odesza.

Californian duo Dub Thompson (live band includes two others) made their way to Brooklyn last week with Montreal’s Ought and a couple other bands for an exciting show with some pretty diverse sounds. The show at Baby’s All Right started out with Modern Vices, who I actually missed. I made it in time for Brooklyn’s own Semi Femme, a three piece with two bassists. And one drummer. No guitars. I get the idea that this could be cool in theory, but honestly, it doesn’t work. I left halfway through the set to get McDonalds, and I stand by my decision.
