DIRTY WINGS, KELLY EVA ELLIS, TELETEXTILE + FAN-TAN @ TRASH BAR: 3/19/8 @ 8PM

by John Coakley

The illustrious DJ Mojo presents a solid bill of indie folk, rock, and folk-rock. Or fock, if you prefer. Labels are ridiculous, aren’t they?

The night begins with Dirty Wings, a guitar/drums/vocals trio that mixes political and musical tension to great effect. Think early Hayden, Billy Bragg, or Pedro the Lion.

If Kelly Eva Ellis looks tough in this picture, well, that’s because she is. She could totally kick your ass if she felt like it. But she’d rather sing her smart and wistful folk tunes with a voice that makes the most jaded of hipsters feel all warm inside.

Then you have Teletextile, originally from Boston but now from Brooklyn. They mix odd instrumentation with strong hooks to create something in between Bjork, Tanita Tikaram, and Regina Spektor, all while sounding like a real band rather than a solo project. Definitely one to watch.

Finally, fan-tan wraps up the night with their elegantly tense indie rock. They’re also a Brooklyn band that came from somewhere else – Chapel Hill, NC, in this case. Think Longwave, Interpol, and pre-mellow Blonde Redhead. Good stuff.

And yes, folks, there is an open bar (PBR & well drinks) from 8-9pm. So get there early. And the ladies get vodka well drinks from midnight-4am for a mere $3, so stay late.
