I really enjoyed Automatic Children's debut EP, "It's Not Me, It's You" (see previous post for EP review) but I haven't yet had a chance to catch the band live.
The band is playing a free show at Rockwood Music Hall on January 22nd. The show is at 7:30PM and Rockwood is 21+.
Here is Deli Magazine's review of the band's EP:
“Automatic Children's music is playful and aggressive, but not cold as you might expect from a band with a name like that.Their songs are rooted in traditional songwriting, with recurring references to pop and rock'n'roll, but the sound is gritty and distorted, reminding the unpolished tunes of Jesus and Mary Chain and The Pixies (alternating male/female vocals and a cover of Gigantic also tie this quartet to the Boston legends).”Rockwood Music Hall is located at 196 Allen Street, just south of Houston St.
