Say Panther and The Lemp Arts Center
I recently discovered local postpunkdiscorockers Say Panther and was quite impressed with the young band's take on the whole make-the-indie-kids-dance genre that was all the rage in New York a few years ago. I imagine the distorted vocals (think Julian Casablancas of The Strokes) would get old after a whole album, but hopefully they will eventually phase that technique out on future releases as the singer gets more confident with his singing voice.
They are playing at the Biliken Club on October 7 with Real Live Tigers and Emperor X.
Here are some mp3's from Say Panther:
Say Panther - Chik Chika
Say Panther - If It's So Hard
Say Panther - Cologne
Also, tonight, at the Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center, come out and see Berlin Whale, who recently blew the roof off at Riddle's as part of the RFT Music Awards Showcase (and are friends with the aforementioned Say Panther), Puppet Show and God Fodder for a fundraiser for the Center. $5.
