Spend Your Weekend with Adam Green

April 21st, 2010

Adam Green rose to prominence around the dawn of the new millennium when he dropped out of school to form the lo-fi, anti-folk Moldy Peaches with Kimya Dawson, whom he had met at a record shop in Mount Kisco, N.Y. But after putting out several albums of slow-paced tunes about adolescent angst, the band broke up—or at least went on a hiatus—in 2004 (although their song “Anyone Else but You” got some big-time play as part of the Juno soundtrack in 2007). Since then, Green (above, performing “Give Them a Token”) has put out several albums of earnest and funny music, the most recent of which, Minor Love, came out this past January. Adam Green plays The Bowery Ballroom this Friday and Saturday. Welcome him with open arms.
