Tonight! Gang Gang Dance, Harlem, And Javelin
Well-dressed art rockers Gang Gang Dance (to your left) will show you how to lose control (and snatch it back) as Lizzi Bougatsos screeches and coos at tonight's MHOW dance party. Elsewhere, Austin-bred merry pranksters Harlem (c'mon, their first record was called Free Drugs ;-)) profess their notoriously deep affection for Nirvana with scuzzed-out guitars and temperamental, pubescent vocals at Mercury Lounge. And to round off the evening, Javelin, the Brooklyn crate-digger duo who zip together devalued cassette-tape samples, throw a release party for their proper debut album, No Mas, at Santos' Party House.
