The Grates

“I didn’t know much about this Australian group until I caught Saturday’s set, but lead singer Patience Hodgson blew me away with her enthusiasm. At one point, she jumped off the stage and onto the floor, told everyone to clear a space and began twirling a ribbon, gymnastics-style. A hardcore fan suddenly appeared, dressed in a leotard, and joined her for a spontaneous dance. These are the SXSW moments you dream of.” [Whitney Matheson @ USA Today]

The Grates played their first of three post-SXSW, NYC shows at Mercury Lounge on Monday night (3/23, with Sky Larkin). Next up is Pianos with Micachu tonight (3/25), and the The Aussie BBQ at the Bell House in Brooklyn on Thursday that The Drones, Youth Group and others are also playing.
