Start Your Weekend with a Dance Party

August 10th, 2011

The dance-punk trio Art vs. Science formed in Sydney in 2008. Dan McNamee (vocals, guitar and keys) had been so inspired by a Daft Punk show that he convinced Jim Finn (vocals and keys) and Dan Williams (drums and vocals)—they’d been friends since high school—to forgo traditional rock in favor of electro-pop. Three years, three EPs and an LP later and the band (above, doing “Parlez Vous Francais”) is still going strong. See Art vs. Science play The Bowery Ballroom on Friday.
