New York City Indie/Dream Pop crew to play Fountain Square in August
New York City Indie group School of Seven Bells has been added to the lineup for the 2012 MidPoint Indie Summer series (kicking off tonight at 7 p.m.!). The project sprouted in 2007 when guitarist Benjamin Curtis split from The Secret Machines and joined forces with singer Alejandra Deheza. The electronic-infused group's most recent release, Ghostory, came out earlier this year to generally great reviews and is certain to pop up on many end-of-the-year critics' polls. Check 'em out on Jimmy Fallon's show below.School of Seven Bells headlines the Aug. 24 MidPoint Indie Summer concert.
If great press translated to negotiable currency, Tommy Keene would have Bill Gates for a personal assistant and pay him weekly out of petty cash. He's been called a potential star so many times, NASA has photographed him with the Hubble telescope. Find the proof on 'Tommy Keene You Hear Me: A Retrospective 1983-2009' (the title being an allusional pun on the seminal Rock opera by The Who, one of Keene's biggest avowed influences).
