Georgie James
Georgie James

At the very least you should know Georgie James as the Saddle Creek band that features John Davis from the disbanded Q and Not U, and at the very least you should also know The Good Life as the Saddle Creek band that features Tim Kasher from Cursive.

Both of these poppy indie rock bands make songs that you can sing along to, and both have new albums. The Good Life's Help Wanted Nights is out today (Sept 11) (stream it here), and Georgie James' Places is out September 25th. Both of these bands are also going on tour - somethimes together, and sometimes not. Some of their shows will include Le Loup (who was great at Pianos the other night) and Luke Temple, and others will not.

Tickets are on sale for Luke Temple, Erie Choir and The Good Life at Bowery Ballroom on October 4th, and tickets are on sale for a show by Georgie James one day eariler at Europa in Brooklyn. CMJ dates TBA? All tour dates below...

georgie james sound like the captain and tennille.

dc is the shit. tons of the good indie bands in new york are dc exiles:

the rapture
french kicks
walkmen
supersystem (who broke up)

such a shame q and not u wasnt around now. with indie rock blowing up they probably would be headlining venues like webster hall.

Georgie James SUCK the big one.

Georgie James is no Q and Not U, but they are a fun little pop band.

Posted by Jeff | September 11, 2007 5:29 PM

These bands can both suck it.

and BTW, Saddle Creek is the US version of Arts&Crafts (who are from Canada), these two labels couldn't discover a new band to save their lives! they both have one band that keep them a float, Bright Eyes for SC and Broken Social Scene from A&C, the rest, boring.

Both labels suck ass.

i agree with the hater.

how about we plug some more sorry-ass band names? Georgie James? That look on his face makes me want to deck him.

anyone know the set times for the good life at bowery tonight??

Posted by Anonymous | October 4, 2007 12:38 PM

the bowery ballroom almost always uses the one hour rule, as in the first band starts one hour after the doors, and every other band one hour thereafter.

the good life is therefore scheduled to come on at 11. if you're still unsure, call the mercury lounge box office.
