While in Cleveland visiting the kids this weekend, Aliburg played a few songs from her new favorite Brookyln band (aren’t they always from Brooklyn these days?!!), Darwin Deez. As the story goes, she was out in Seattle with another fellow resident (as in contractual labor in the medical profession) watching another fellow resident’s band and when the set was over, everyone but Aliburg and her friend left before the start of the opening act: a few good-natured goofies from the East Coast who didn’t let a little thing like wee audience numbers ruin their good time. Aliburg gave high ratings for the show, and mentioned that in between songs, they did little dances. This is Aliburg’s usually favored sweet-natured goof-rock fare, and it makes sense, given that DD cites DC’s own Dismemberment Plan (among others) as its influence.
They’ll be out at SXSW this year, followed by a European tour, and then hopefully another run around the states cause I could really stand to see a good show again, too (White Rabbits did not really bring it last week… although Brooklyn’s own, The Caveman were a good start to the night).
So ladies and germs… I give you, Darwin Deez and the video, “You Are a Radar Detector.” And if it were any longer, there might have been time to throw in a unicorn or two.
