MXTS 2010 Preview: These United States
It’s 2010 (duh), it’s almost time for our annual Music By The Slice party. It is also time to start introducing you to the folks who will be gracing the Home Slice stages.
Forget schlepping around the city, looking for parking, and getting to the show just in time to catch the last song, and post up in our backyard oasis for our best line up yet (and we’ve had some killer line up’s!). We’re so excited to welcome These United States this year, a band who’s toured relentlessly since their inception a few years back. With 3 albums released in the past 2 years, these guys have certainly earned the accolades their peers have bestowed upon their 3rd, and most recent album, Everything Touches Everything. Members Jesse Elliott, J. Tom Hnatow, Robby Cosenza, Justin Craig, and Colin Kellogg have certainly seen their music get labeled 6 ways from Sunday, but the important thing to note is that rock follows each and every one. It’s a little fuzzy and dirty (as everything should be, really), it’s a little poppy, and it’s a lot of good listening. Close your eyes. The wafting smell of pizza tickles your nose, the condensation of your icy cold beverage drips down your wrist, and the sounds of TUS vibrate over and through your head, your toes. Hurry up and get here, March.
These United States performs Thursday, March 18, 3:45 pm at Home Slice Pizza’s Music by the Slice.
