Heliotropes @ Cake Shop 11/16/2013
Heliotropes

Brooklyn's Heliotropes released their riff-heavy debut, A Constant Sea, over the summer and if you haven't heard it yet you can stream it below. Seeing them live is where it's at, though, and luckily these ladies like to play shows. Your next chance to see them is at Brooklyn Night Bazaar on December 27 where they'll open for the first of Psychic TV's two shows there. House of Blondes are also on the bill and that should be an interesting show to say the least. Like all BK Bazaar shows, it's free.

We've also got a belated set of pics from Heliotropes' 11/16 show at Cake Shop and those are in this post. Also, we've been asking bands to give us the 2013 Best Ofs, and Heliotropes singer Jessica Numsuwankijkul gave us a rather interesting list, her "Top 6 Musical Torture Scenarios of 2013." Check that out, along with those Cake Shop pics, below...

Anthony Kiedis seems like a nice guy, I would hang out with him under a bridge. The guy from Smashmouth is probably nice but annoying, I guess she chose him because he looks like Guy Fieri?

I don't understand something - in the pictures it looks like all women on stage. Who's playing the instruments?

Anyone want to debate or discuss the contrast between the holiday cheer of the Jethro tull xmas album vs. the Bob Dylan xmas album?

Seems like Heliotropes does plenty of interviews, though I have yet to see one that is solely about their music. They're always portrayed as that "wacky" all girl band that is telling us their "Top 10" of whatever their PR person throws their way. I wonder if they even realize that's the esthetic that they've created for themselves. It's like, "Yay, cute songs girls, but tell me about your favorite sandwich..."

@ 11:07 Who cares? Sounds like you are whining about a band actually having a personality.
