The Hairs @ Fulton Stall Market
The Hairs is the latest music project from Kevin Alvir who has previously masterminded NYC indiepop bands The Lil' Hospital and Knight School. Even though the band is pretty new, The Hairs already have a 7" on Portland's fine Magic Marker Records that contains four scrappy, charming songs. One of which, "Duh x 12," has gotten some attention for its video which was directed by Dean Fleischer-Camp who made internet sensation Marcel the Shell. [Bill Pearis]The Hairs played a free and slightly rainy show on Sunday (7/3) at Fulton Stall Market, the second of four shows presented by This Week In Indie/Sound Bites scribe Bill Pearis. Pictures are in this post, as is the "Duh x 12" video (below).
If you missed it, you can try again when The Hairs play Glasslands TONIGHT (7/5) with Mazes, Beige, and Country Mice. Look for The Hairs also at Shea Stadium on Thursday (7/7) with Radical Dads, and at Littlefield on 7/13 with Glitter and Great Lakes (the show description merely reads "Summertime! Indiepop! Fun!").
Mazes' (not to be confused with the similarly monikered band featuring Frankie Beverly) played Bowery Ballroom on June 25th as part of their with White Denim. Glasslands is your last chance to catch them before they return to their native Europe where they'll be doing more touring this summer.
