indieboy brian's band my dark star played their first gig at the youth park just this evening, and i must say they're an awesome live band. gerald, thom, brian and haiks delivered a driving 4 song set that resurrected rock, bits of funk, noisepop and yes, even tads of shoegazey effects. the result: a seamless blend of music that's evocative, melancholic, and closely knit all at once.
i'd once mentioned to brian how the band needed a sound to call their own- and i believe they've seized it right here. well done!
