NJ indie-rock band The Handsome Men are making their NYC debut with a show on March 5th at Arlene's Grocery. The Handsome Men are headlining the show and go on at 11PM (knowing how Arlene's runs, they will likely play after midnight) and tickets are $8. Sharing the bill is Mikey Jukebox (x-Longwave), Giftshop, Ramon and Dylan (2010 digital EP available as free download), Samual Saffery and Stoned Fire.
The Handsome Men started playing live earlier this year and have posted a couple tracks in advance of the release of their first EP. The band has an agit/post-punk sound on the two tracks posted which take me back to my college radio days in the mid-80's but the songs don't sound dated at all.
