Saint Cecilia Studios Showcase at Hotel Congress

December 4, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:55 pm

W/ BRYDES, TYLER AKIN, AND AMADEE (DOORS AT 8PM, FREE, 21+)

While acts who are ostensibly indie-rock have been taking inspiration from the ‘80s since, well, the mid-’90s, it’s usually been tempered by irony or derived from uncommercial or at the time under-appreciated sources. And even Taylor Swift, the biggest of them all, released a record — “1989” — that appropriated certain signposts of the decade’s pop music through an unmistakably current lens.

BRYDES jump in all the way, with huge, glistening synths and percolating hi-hat rhythms, punctuated by Mazza’s huge voice, ready-made in this context for the archetypal big ‘80s MTV anthem — even her whispers register on the projection screen TV.
