Polica @ Brooklyn Bowl (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Polica

Twin Cities StarTribune sums it up nicely:

[Polica] properly seized the moment, which came to them last-minute after Tom Waits had to cancel. Fallon somewhat wise-acrely emphasized the "ç" in the band's name during his introduction. And the band somewhat boldly made "Leading to Death" its wise song selection. not one of the tracks from its album touted as a single, but one that has been a clear highlight in its live sets this spring. Maybe the smartest move of them all, though, was by Ivascu, who did not miss achance to mouth the words, "Hi Mom!," into the cameras after the commercial break when Fallon came back to bid adieu (alas, not part of the clip below).

Members of Poliça wound up watching hosting a TV viewing party over at the Knitting Factory's Brooklyn offshoot, where manager Nate Vernon was DJ-ing. Coincidentally or not, Nate's brother Justin Vernon also had a big TV taping on Wednesday night: He and his Bon Iver brethren were back in Austin, Texas, taping an episode of "Austin City Limits." You can read about that one here. Or, even better, you can click here for the hilarious "Bon Iver Erotica" spoof that's now going around,

Watch Polica on Fallon below...

Does anyone else think that she thinks that she's trying to sound like Bjork?

If nothings else, it seems cool to me that a band nobody has heard of before-and who very well may have formed yesterday-has an equal shot at performing on national television as GaGa, or whoever people listen to these days.

"Would gape this pasty white bitch's asshole."


Funny, considering your pasty white bitch ass was being gaped and plugged by that big black brother the other day, while you here softly humming songs from the Pains of Being Pure At Heart to cope.

stop using autotune. if you can't sing you can't sing. at least be honest with yourself and don't sugarcoat shit. HER VOICE IS PROBABLY GOOD, BUT I CAN NOT TELL BECAUSE OF THE AUTOTUNE. stop with the fucking autotune. STOP!

Her dress the color of hummus, her voice like a whole foods PA.

This was a rough show for them. I'd implore you to give them a youtube video or 2. Really not near that hard on the ears.

I like very much the girl from Polica. That reminds me a lot of memories about my ex girlfriend. I like the songs too.
