Hot Ticket: The Postelles @ Red Palace 2/12/11

If you have not been to the Red and the Black lately, you are in for a pleasant surprise. They have combined their space with the upstairs space from the Palace of Wonders and have an attractive and thankfully bigger space now called the Red Palace. The stage is higher off the ground, the PA is larger, the DC9 guy has run the sound when I have been there, and it just has a nice club feeling inside rather than the former cramped space which felt more like an attic than a club, since it basically was an attic.

So why head out there this Saturday? Well, the Postelles bring some of their New York pop/garage rock to the new stage. Could they be the heirs to the Fleshtones? No, I think they have a little more indie rock to their sound than flat out garage pop, but boy can they do pop harmonies. I will be interested to see how harmonize live and in person over the course of a full set. And with sets from New York’s Snowmine and Toronto’s Dinosaur Bones, there will likely be some great sounds emanating from these three touring bands.

Born in 1959 in the same hospital as Bob Dylan, David survived the progressive excesses of the early 70s to embrace the fledgling Dayton Ohio punk scene in the late 70s. After managing Toxic Reasons, working on shows with DOA and Husker Du, publishing zines, and hosting a radio show, he moved into a more lucrative career (while collecting a massive record collection in the mean time). Retired from real work, he has resumed his music work with his blog DC ROCK LIVE. He also reviews CDs for the European magazine Folkworld.
