In Da Clubs

Posted By on Fri, Jun 12, 2009 at 10:28 PM

Who said New Orleans isn’t an indie rock town? Maybe those brand-savvy Collectivists are on to something. Tonight at the Marigny Theatre, area imprint Park the Van Records has perhaps its four best bands playing the same venue. The pecking order, starting at 9:30 p.m., is Floating Action (see gorgeous, yet oddly hilarious, video above), Generationals, the High Strung and the Peekers. And over at the Leaning Tower of Lee Circle, Silent Cinema plays its second gig with new drummer Bret Bohnet (of White Bitch and One Man Machine & the Powers That Be), who takes over on skins after the, ahem, incident at the Blue Nile last month. “Anyone who was at our show … knows what went on,” the band writes on its blog. “No need to harp on it.” For those who weren’t there, the requisite harping: Unhappy with the show’s sound quality — which, it should be noted, was atrocious — previous drummer Christian Bale* pitched a hissy fit, kicked over his kit and stormed offstage. So yeah, bienvenidos, Mr. Bohnet. Read Gambit’s words on PTV's showcase and Silent Cinema here and here, respectively.
