See the Pains of Being Pure at Heart at Webster Hall This SaturdaySeptember 30th, 2009
The NYC-based quartet the Pains of Being Pure at Heart formed in 2007 and self-released a self-titled EP later that year. An LP, also named The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, followed this year. With the band’s fuzzy-guitar sound and pop sensibilities, the group has earned comparisons to prior shoegaze acts like My Bloody Valentine and Black Tambourine. But you be the judge: Check out the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, above, playing “Higher Than the Stars” for Seattle’s KEXP radio station, and then go see them, along with the Depreciation Guild and Cymbals Eat Guitars, on Saturday at Webster Hall.
