FREE ENERGY and GLINT live

Pool your talent.
Free Energy puts on their pants like the rest of you, one leg at a time. Except when their pants are on, they make earth-quaking, anthemic indie jams that will make you take yours off. Their sound, which taps the production of LCD Soundsysem’s James Murphy, can be described as the arena rock grooves of Toto interpolating the lyrical and melodic sensibilities of Pavement. They’re no live slouches either; Pitchfork Media said of their performance, “this is seriously fun music, the type of thing Weezer have attempted for the last few years except not as creepy or cloying.” Free Energy’s display of rock purity will be instilling eternal youth and vigor at Santos Party House on November 28 – wear something loose.

All in favor go crazy.
Having cast the net from Brooklyn to initiate members from Israel and Brazil, Glint has grown into an internationally acclaimed powerhouse of intricate electronica spliced with dirty alternative rock. Their cleverly layered harmonies (Jase Blankfort is a stage performer on Broadway and elsewhere), pummeling percussion and windy guitars are trippy and transcendental enough to, for example, make you think you were a bumblebee and try to fly through a keyhole.
