Teenagers @ CAke Shop

The Teenagers' performance at Mercury Lounge last time around was so-so. The thing that stuck with me the most was how "Nada Surf - Popular" their style of singing and talking was (not a good thing). That said, they're back and they've moved up the venue ladder with shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg (TONIGHT/Saturday) and Bowery Ballroom (Monday). They're also playing a free show at American Apparel in Park Slope on Sunday, and a show at Maxwell's in a week. All non-clothing store dates are with Team Robespierre. All dates, and more pictues from their February Cake Shop in-store, below....

But when The Hold Steady sing/talk it's "soooo cool." That's some seriously hypocritical bullshit.

12:38, The The is a fine band, but slagging them was the only way I could make my post come off properly.
