Show Preview: Beach Fossils at Glasslands


Yes, New York is covered in snow right now, but this Saturday night will sound like summer when Beach Fossils playGlasslands in Brooklyn. A Place to Bury StrangersCavemanGuardsARMS, and Dreamers of the Ghetto round out the lineup, all starting at 7:30pm. Tickets are $12 in advance, $14 at the door. This show is brought to you by I Guess I’m Floating, to celebrate their 5th anniversary.

Here’s a previous Beach Fossils showcase for I Guess I’m Floating:

I’m also really looking forward to seeing A Place to Bury Strangers live. As their name suggests, their songs are a little darker than the summery sounds of Beach Fossils. They are more psychedelic rock, with just a hint of New Order, and evenThe Cure on songs like “I Know I’ll See You.” I fell in love with the psychedelic sounds of Himalaya back in December when I saw them at Pianos, and they were definitely a band best experienced live. I’m betting that A Place to Bury Strangers is the same way, and with songs like “Smile When You Smile” and “Everything Always Goes Wrong,” there is even more dance potential.

All of this just sounds like a win win win situation to me. A place to get out of the frigid cold, inside the cute art space that is Glasslands, six bands for $14, and it’s an anniversary party! That also means drink specials and possibly some communal treats. That’ll warm you up!
