Candy Claws

Candy Claws were last in NYC in July and have since toured with Magic Kids and been given even more accolades by various websites across the internet. My biggest question with an atmosphereric band like Candy Claws, is whether they are worth seeing live. Check out the five videos embeded below to help make up your mind. I'm still slightly undecided.

I might try to make one of their two NYC shows this week, the first being tonight (9/21) at The Rock Shop, and the next happening Wednesday (9/22) at Mercury Lounge on a stacked lineup that is headlined by Crocodiles, and also includes The Girls at Dawn and Reading Rainbow (tickets).

All dates and videos below...

I saw them at SXSW this year and it will definitely be worth it! Very charming kiddies.
