April Calendar

This will be an interesting gig–one that’s definitely worth cutting your Taco Tuesday celebrations a little short. Froth and Wildhoney both come from shoegaze-y backgrounds; Froth’s took place out in LA, while Wildhoney hails from the nearby land of Baltimore. Froth may have started out pretty noisy, but they’ve gone in a more overtly pop direction recently, specifically on brand new third LP Outside, Briefly. Their tendency to work within classic pop song structures and to create indelible melodies that hark back to the 60s heyday of the girl group mixes intriguingly with blasts of noise and effects. The result is quite fascinating.
