As a proud resident of Charlottesville, VA, I feel obligated to let you know that the Invisible Hand, probably the city’s biggest indie band at the moment, are really, really good at making charged-up power-pop. Their “Psychic Cat” video is full of local landmarks, which is fun for me and probably less so for you. But the real reason to click is the quick little energy-burst of a song. It, along with a few dates, is below.
12/19 – Charlottesvile, VA @ Tea Bazaar (with Dwight Howard Johnson, Diarrhea Planet)
12/20 – Richmond, VA @ Strange Matter (with the Babies, Positive No)
12/21 – Philadelphia, PA @ Kung-Fu Necktie (with Lux Perpetua)
12/22 – New York, NY @ Cake Shop (with Icewater)
The Invisible Hand’s Aja EP is out now on Funny/Not Funny Records. Shout out to the lady with the hula hoop who seems to live on that patch of grass next to the Pavilion.
