TMD Presents: Spirit Animal w/ Badboxes & Twin Wave on May 9th
Fun fact: One year ago on May 9th we promoted our first live event. We’ve had a dangerously good time since then and it’s only fitting that a year later, to the day, we will celebrate with one of our favorite indie lineups of all time.
Perhaps you thought Rock was over. Or that guitar solos, haunting bass lines, power crash cymbals and the valiant but chivalrous front-man were dead? Think again. When was the last time you heard an indie crowd roar like a stadium after every song? Spirit Animal is the indie Chili Peppers, its just that simple…and you could not be catching them at a more appropriate venue. Hint: the catwalk at The Westway will be in play like never before.
Next up, our brothers from another mothers, Badboxes. Hailing from Pittsburgh, you’d think they were our neighbors because we’ve had them play 3 of our shows and this will make for number 4. Making them quite literally, our favorite band to work with. That is no coincidence; we cannot get enough of these guys. From the first note of JSMN, I knew I was hooked and we’ve been finding ways to get them back to NYC as often as possible, cause the people need to know. Seeing a Badboxes set is a borderline religious experience. Their brand of Northern Pop gives me goosebumps every time. DO NOT MISS THIS SET.
Shelf those dinner plans and join us early cuz there’s no fat on this lineup. To kick it all off we’ve got one of Brooklyn most buzzworthy new acts, Twin Wave. Alt-J meets Dan Croll with a heavy Radiohead influence, this new act is predetermined for greatness. Don’t believe me? Just listen to Relapse below. You can’t lie, that track is an undeniable hit.
Get your tickets here and we’ll see you on May 9th!
And lastly, our very own The Most Definitely (DJ Set) will be building the energy between acts and spoon feeding a deep disco dance party to cap off the night. After a brilliant SXSW debut, where he shared the stage with some of indie’s finest performers, I’m extremely pumped to see how this set plays out on his home turf. Check out The New Silver mixtape below and you’ll know why.
