See the Wombats and the Static Jacks Tonight at Webster Hall

April 26th, 2012

Dan Haggis (drums, keys and backing vocals), Matthew Murphy (vocals, guitar and keys) and Tord Øverland-Knudsen (bass, keys and backing vocals) became friends close to 10 years ago at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. Shortly after meeting they formed the Wombats. The band has put out several EPs and two LPs—including last year’s This Modern Glitch—filled with infectious dance rock. The Wombats (above, doing “School Uniforms”) are currently on tour with the Westfield, N.J. quartet the Static Jacks (below, performing “My Parents Lied” for The Bowery Presents Live), and you can see both bands tonight at Webster Hall.
