Deaf Havana Play Mercury Lounge on Thursday Night

February 11th, 2014

The English group Deaf Havana—James Veck-Gilodi (vocals and guitar), Max Britton (keys and vocals), Chris Pennells (guitar), Tom Ogden (drums and vocals), Matthew Veck-Gilodi (guitar and vocals) and Lee Wilson (bass)—dabble in the heavier side of alternative rock. Think: anthemic punkish pop deftly mixed with post-hardcore vigor. Last September, Deaf Havana (above, performing “Saved”) released their third studio album, Old Souls (stream it below), filled with catchy, sing-along tunes. And thanks to their energetic live show, the six-piece has opened on European dates for Bruce Springsteen and Muse. But you won’t have to travel that far to see them this week because Deaf Havana play Mercury Lounge on Thursday night.

A Simian Mobile Dance Party Comes to Webster Hall

December 5th, 2012

James Ford and Jas Shaw were already part of the experimental-electronic band Simian, but, with shared interest in electronic dance music, they wanted something more. So they left the original group to form the electronic-music duo Simian Mobile Disco. As DJs and producers, Ford and Shaw are also known for their remix work (together and individually) with groups like Arctic Monkeys, Muse and Florence and the Machine. Their first LP, the subtle but energetic Attack Decay Sustain Release, came out in 2007 and was very well received. Simian Mobile Disco have remained busy ever since: Their third album, Unpatterns (stream it below), was released earlier this year, and tomorrow night they bring their dance party to Webster Hall.
