This Friday, FRICTION NYC returns this month with Bear Hands, Boy Crisis, Blip Blip Bleep, Bottle Up & Go at the Mercury Lounge.
On September 5, 2008, Bear Hands bring their fiery pitch-perfect pairing of post-punk and indie rock, while Boy Crisis unleash their highly danceable electro-pop “that’s so brutally hip it hurts” to The Mercury Lounge for this strictly local edition of FRICTION. Brooklyn’s euphoric new wavers Blip Blip Bleep ready the dancefloor with shimmering pop hooks and throbbing beats. As with most FRICTION lineups, openers Bottle Up & Go are the curveball here, who play a brand of stripped down, rowdy blues, sorta like Black Keys but with more whiskey and abrasiveness. M68 (Arsed, dirty little stayout) spins between sets.
The Mercury Lounge is located at 217 East Houston Street (corner of Avenue A and Houston Street), New York, NY (212–260–4700). Advance TICKETS are $10. Box office hours are Monday-Saturday from Noon-7pm. Doors open at 7:30pm the night of the show.
