The Pains of Being Pure at Heart at Summerstage in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Pains

On February 28 at 285 Kent, the Brooklyn venue will be hosting Indie Pop Prom, a show with a totally killer lineup headlined by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and also featuring sets by Swearin', Waxahatchee, Weed Hounds, and Potty Mouth. There will be DJ sets by Frankie Rose and Shirley Braha (Weird Vibes) and the show was produced by Maria Sherman. Tickets are $10 or $8 if you come dressed in prom attire, and are on sale now.

In addition to looking like a totally fun night, and the fact that seeing TPOBPAH at 285 Kent is probably crazy with any support lineup, a few other things are notable about this show. You may know that Swearin' singer Allison Crutchfield and Waxahatchee (who also plays the Don Giovanni showcase) singer Katie Crutchfield are twin sisters and used to be in PS Eliot together, and it's the first show in about two years for Weed Hounds (who have played NYC a bunch in the past). And if you're going to the show, be sure to get there early to check out Potty Mouth.

More like you are crazy if you want to see The Pains of Whatever The Fuck at all. I hope this "prom" ends like the one in Carrie and all the hipster fucks get burned to a crisp.

This is supposed to be a good line-up... Hide your baby boners and paper bag it if you attend.

Infantile b.s. Indie-pop has come to embrace sincerely everything it ironically commented upon at its founding. It is all the worse for doing so.

how could you play something called an "indie pop prom" and live with yourself? oh wait, it's the pains of being pure at heart. maybe the check from urban outfitters didn't come this month.

Jones Beach is the worst seated venue in the "NYC area". Nothing like rich, fat Long Islanders showcasing their slutty 50 year old wives.
