Union Pool
Tuesday, July 6

Last night in the freezing (yessss) back room of Union Pool, three Brooklyn acts gave startlingly fresh performances. The bill--Red Romans, a jangly and well-crafted pop band that's the side project of Chris Burke from Beach Fossils; seven-piece Motown post-punk band Ava Luna; Total Slacker, a Brooklyn three-piece that never plays minor chords (true story)--was made up entirely of friends, though none of the acts really sound the same.
