Supporting Acts: pools are nice, Kindred Queer Eyes Lips Eyes
Fresh off their self-produced album, Blue Red (Oct 2011), Eyes Lips Eyes is already back to work finishing their follow-up with producer John Goodmanson (Death Cab, Nada Surf) and mixing engineer Mike Rosekelly (Kaskade). The Utah quartet, now LA-based, describes its sound as "disco-punk." The upbeat, hook-laden songs, rehearsed at the band's loft party-performances, recall elements of Television and other late seventies post punk, mixed with the unbridled, night out energy of The Strokes and Talking Heads. Eyes Lips Eyes has taken it's high-energy garbage can banging performances all over the country. In a few short years, they've performed with acts like Spoon, Black Keys, Raconteurs, Shiny Toy Guns, Bob Dylan and were most recently named one of CNN's Top 5 things to watch out for at SXSW 2012.
