Action Painters are headlining the Southpaw show for the BAM thing on Feb 12th. They are pretty great. Harlem Shakes are playing the Saturday one at Southpaw. Both two great indie pop type bands.

I'm so stoked for this. It's a legitimately great lineup of big and little bands.

Bands I will watch in ABC order:

Action Painters (Southpaw)
Chairlift (BAM)
Harlem Shakes (Southpaw)
Virgins (BAM)
