See Tally Hall Tomorrow Night at The Bowery Ballroom

March 3rd, 2010

Tally Hall is a five-man rock band out of Ann Arbor, Mich. While they’re known for deftly mixing garage rock with pop harmonies, you’ll also notice that each member—singer-guitarist Rob Cantor (yellow), drummer Ross Federman (silver), guitarist Joe Hawley (red), keyboardist Andrew Horowitz (green) and bassist Zubin Sedghi (blue)—wears a distinctive tie. The group got its start in 2002, but didn’t put out an album until Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum was released, to rave reviews, in 2006. Fortunately, things worked out because Cantor had passed on a full ride at the University of Michigan medical school in order to give the band (above, playing “Be Born” for a shot. You can give them a shot, too, when Tally Hall (with Jukebox the Ghost) plays The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night.
