[LIVE] 7/9 @ The Spare Room: Molly Moore + Brandyn Burnette, & Le Swish

Another big night at The Spare Room tomorrow night!

Returning champs Le Swish will kick things off with their funked out indie pop grooves designed to move. I recommend bringing your own cocktail umbrellas for these guys.

Then Brandyn Burnette and Molly Moore return with a full band to bring the heat and grooves. Two great talents in their own right are even better when combining forces in one set.

Sounds like… the band (and Blind Date alums) GNTLMN are as fond of changing their name as they are of crafting dreamy cloud-pop that descends like a blinding fog, distorting everything you thought you knew about the room you are in. Leaving you with no choice but to lay on the floor and use your hands as airplanes, flying them above your drowsy head. Just soaring and floating.

Future: Thursday night @ The Spare Room
