The Main Drag : Perfecting The Formula



I've thought about how to best deliver The Main Drag scenario in a short, concise description. After seeing them open for Thick As Thieves at Great Scott last night, the formula is simple: three multi-instrumentalists, a drummer that is the equivalent of a human energy drink, and one really, really incredible guitarist. Not only are they engaging, sarcastic, and entertaining between songs, but their antics while running around stage and switching instruments display a sincere chemistry of friendship and musicianship that isn't easy to find if you've been in the indie circuit for a while.

Variety is the key. I've sifted through their MySpace over and over this morning, and in addition to the set they played last night I can't put my finger on anything yet. Even so, to be so pleasantly surprised is a treat. They've played with some great local bands such as Mad Man Films (another personal favorite), Movers And Shakers, and Protokoll, as well as shared a stage with Arcade Fire, The Unicorns, and The Young Knives (who have that one goddamn song I can't get enough of...)

They've just reworked "All My Friends," the incredible anthem from the all-around winner Sound Of Silver by the already-legendary LCD Soundsystem for the holidays. CokeMachineGlow is one of their biggest fans, and the re-do (I feel it belittling to call it a cover, it's so goddamn good!) is available now [read more...]

Even though my favorite kind of music is ska, "My Friends" has really called my attention, in fact, This is really addictive music! I mean, I agree with you!

I don't know how people could loved this group, I think that their music sucks....
I found about them in Kamagra page, which recommended us about new music groups or something about famous people.
