The Sun-Birds : These Kids Are Amazing!
Looking for a great band to see this Friday night? Confused because Ben's picks only lasted half the week and now you don't know what to do? Might I humbly suggest checking out the Sun-Birds at Towne Lounge. I saw these guys play with Chrome Wings at Chaos Cafe on Feb 18, and was too lame to write about it then, but here's my second chance. The Sun-Birds play great psychedelic-style tunes, and if that's not enough, all of them switch pretty much effortlessly between instruments, and they can't be older than 18. At first I couldn't decide whether to love them or hate them for being so ridiculously talented, but their music convinced me and I went for love. Their original songs are excellent, with a good dose of authentic psychedelic sound, and they have fantastic taste in covers - when I saw them, they did Elvis Costello's "Pump it Up." If you get a chance, check them out!
