Sky Larkin, Peggy Sue, Micachu & the Grates – SXSW to NYC

Micachu & the Shapes @ Ms. Bea’s – Todd P SXSW – March 18, 2009 (andycarvin)
Micachu and the Shapes

“SXSW has positioned itself as a one-stop opportunity to make contacts across the American music business, and it has had a steadily increasing presence for bands from abroad. This year there were 594 international acts at official showcases.

One startling British import was Micachu and the Shapes, a trio of former music school students who love bare-bones structures. Mica Levi’s terse, choppy songs for the group use dissonant guitar chords, hardheaded lyrics, a swinging drumbeat, perky keyboard hooks and contrapuntal cowbells, among other things, for songs with the ebullience of a skiffle band and the hardheadedness of hip-hop. [NY Times]

Micachu have been keeping busy in Texas all week. Tonight they/she/whatever play their first post-SXSW NYC show at Cake Shop. From there it’s Death by Audio and Pianos (with the Grates).

Jay Jay Pistolet and Peggy Sue, now finished with their run of shows in Austin, kick off their multiple-night run in NYC with a show at Pianos tonight (3/23).

Sky Larkin is also here tonight (3/23) – at Mercury Lounge with The Grates who, in addition to the Pianos/Micachu show are also playing the Bell House while in town.
