Pretty & Nice @ Pianos for BV CMJ (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Pretty and Nice

Tucked away in a basement somewhere on the outskirts of Boston, there is a secret lair filled with motley recording equipment, and a neatly organized cache of guitars, synths and other flashing electronics. The stockpile of gadgetry is owned and operated by three young gentlemen who call themselves Pretty & Nice.
Pretty & Nice will be opening for The Thermals at the Bell House tonight. It's a late show (starts at 11), and it's sold out. Joseph Arthur & The Lonely Astronauts play the early show in the same venue. Pretty & Nice play again in Brooklyn on February 5th. All dates below...

The Thermals stomped and stepped on it last night, leaving it for dead on the side of the road. Maybe they didn't quite kill it - but it was a good show.
The new songs sounded solid alongside the oldies - in fact, they sounded much the same. Not a bad thing. A few covers including Nirvana and (maybe) a 90's song about "I'll be there"(?). The new drummer welded the beat and Kathy is always a joy to watch.
Bell House is a welcome addition to the rock club pantheon. A nice sized music room with good sound and not oversold (at least not last night). A separate bar area, also open to the public, with a good variety of beers and comfy chairs. The staff is also friendly, even offering to call a service car for those patrons who think they've wandered too far off the Brooklyn radar.

The Thermals covered The Breeders' "Saints" and the place went nutso.

This band is amazing live so much energy and fun cant wait to see them again although id love it if they got a second guitar player to fill inthe live sound (id love to be the one). And what isent a better band than one that thrives on early 90's music covering nirvana and the breeders. So perfect! Posting videos to the covers shortly
