Upset -- the new band fronted by former Vivian Girls/Best Coast drummer Ali Koehler, along with Patty Schemel (Hole), Jenn Prince, and a rotating fourth member (which did/does include Kickball Katy, Kyle Gilbride from Swearin', Rachel Gagliardi of Slutever) -- released their punky, poppy debut LP, She's Gone, back in 2013 via Don Giovanni, and they've now paid tribute to one of their punky influences, 7 Seconds, whose song "Not Just Boys Fun" they recorded a cover of. Check out that cover below.
Upset will also be heading to SXSW, where they'll play a number of shows including the BrooklynVegan day party on Friday, March 14 at Red 7, which also includes Parquet Courts, Beth Israel and more TBA. (full lineup coming very soon, we promise!) You can check out their whole schedule below.
In related news, Kyle Gilbride, who produced She's Gone and performed as a member of Upset at the Don Giovanni showcase in February will play NYC tonight when his band Swearin' brings their tour to Music Hall of Williamsburg (3/7) with Even Hand and Certain Spiders. It's the band's second NYC show this week (they played Cake Shop last night with former Vivian Girl Cassie Ramone), and was recently moved to MHOW from Rough Trade. Tickets for tonight's show are still available, and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to enter to win are below.
