See Boy Crisis Tomorrow Night at Mercury Lounge

August 24th, 2009

The members of Brooklyn’s electro-pop band Boy Crisis—Alex Kestner (keys), Lee Pender (guitar), Tal Rozen (bass), Owen Roberts (drums) and Victor Vazquez (vocals)—met at Wesleyan Art College, just like MGMT and Das Racist (the rap duo of which Vazquez is a member). Before ever releasing an album or signing a recording contract, Boy Crisis earned raves last year on the strength of singles “Strawberries” and “Dressed to Kill.” They even garnered attention as far away as England when The Guardian named them the New Band of the Day. Check out the “Dressed to Digress” video, above, and then see what all the fuss is about when they play Mercury Lounge tomorrow night.
