Eternal Summers & Pow Wow! play Irving Plaza with 90's Alt-Weirdos Presidents of the United States of America on April 15th

You already know Spring has Sprung, but next Monday Eternal Summers hit NYC with some heat of their own. Nicole Yun and Daniel Cundiff started off in Roanoke, Virginny as a guitar and drums duo before adding bassist Jonathan Woods to the fold. Now their jangly, penetrating rhythms are complete and Nicole's dazey, nonchalant vocals have a strength reminiscent of Ana da Silva from The Raincoats or a more minimal, dreamier Jenny Lewis.

Their sophomore album, Correct Behavior, off Kanine Records garnered rave reviews from all over, especially on Pitchfork. This has lead to them being hand picked by Martin Van Buren, Rutherford B. Hayes and Gerald Ford The Presidents of the United States of America to accompany them on the east coast swing of their latest tour. Stops include Philly, Boston, Asbury NJ and of course, Monday night at NYC's Irving Plaza (tickets still available, somehow!).

Also on the card are local sweetiepies pow wow!. I have been a big fan of theirs since their album "Don't Stop to Look" warmed me up during the dead of winter. I challenge you to listen to their spritely melodies without bursting into a full earbud-to-earbud smile. I have not seen them live yet but I have heard such great things I'm really excited to check them out!

As if that undercard isn't enough, the headliners and soundtrack to my childhood, P.U.S.A and their off the wall 90's antics are sure to please. In fact, they are currently offering a pay-what-you-want, acoustic album, available for download on Noisetrade.

Help Eternal Summers out by pre-pre-ordering their next album on They are offering tons of great rewards at different pledge levels: the album at $15 bucks, a signed LP at $42 and for $2,000 you can cut off Dan's (I assume the guy on the right) long hair. If you miss this show you are going to be kicking yourself all summer. Take your tax refund, use it to buy your tickets and come on out Monday Night. In the meantime, watch this sweet, wistful video that was apparently filmed at every Ohio State kegger I've ever attended.
