It was worth the drive on an otherwise quiet Sunday night to see Boston’s Pretty & Nice at Denver’s Hi-Dive. After loving their album last year, these guys were the first band I saw at SXSW (in the sparkly pink Beauty Bar) and I was mightily impressed.
This weekend I realized that their angular music is so rad simply because it juts and leaps and shines with threads of punk, woven with catchy melodies….and makes me feel young.
Go see these guys if you get a chance.
