Pity Sex at Baby's All Right at BV-CMJ 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Pity Sex

Last year's Indie Pop Prom (which featured TPOBPAH, Swearin', Waxahatchee and others) wasn't a one-time thing; it will return this year on February 22 at Baby's All Right with Syracuse punks Friendless Bummer, Ann Arbor shoegazers Pity Sex, Atlanta's Places to Hide, scrappy poppy punks Radiator Hospital, a Bad Banana reunion (one of Katie Crutchfield [Waxahatchee] and her twin sister Allison's [Swearin'] old projects), DJ sets by Weekend and Neon Indian, and very special guests "Traitor Bitches" (TBA 2/12). The show is 18+ and tickets are on sale now.

Indie Pop Prom is one of three chances you'll have to catch Radiator Hospital in NYC this February, including their show with The Marked Men and the Double Double Whammy showcase.

Not that the whole lineup isn't worth highlighting, but one especially exciting thing is that Places to Hide will finally make it to NYC from Atlanta. Back in 2013, they released a terrific album, Almost Nothing, which you can download (name your price) at bandcamp and stream in full below. The band tag the album as "90s," "punk," "emo," "indie pop," "indie rock," "stoner," "surf," and other things, and though those tags usually describe pretty different sounding bands, they kind of do all apply to Places to Hide. If you ever wondered what "stoner emo indie pop" would sound like, it might be this.

Streams Almost Nothing, along with music from the rest of the lineup, below...


Friendless Bummer - Friends Forever

Pity Sex - Feast of Love

Places to Hide - Almost Nothing

Radiator Hospital - Something Wild

Bad Banana - "Stand Next To Me"

I don't think Maria Sherman actually knows anything about "emo," but I appreciate that she's trying

"But you're talking to me about your favorite bands, Descendents and Dinosaur Jr." Yeah, I love Katie Crutchfield.
