THE HUNDRED IN THE HANDS at Wrongbar, Thursday, June 14. Rating: NNNN
This electro-leaning pop/rock duo from Brooklyn just released their sophomore record Red Night (Warp) last week, but it was the frantic post-punk pulse of 2008's Dressed In Dresden that first turned heads.
With a new live drummer filling out their dance beats, guitarist Jason Friedman wowed fans with extended builds on fan-faves Pigeons and the disco-dusted Young Aren't Young. Sadly, calls for their punky gem Sleepwalkers went unanswered, but c'est la vie with short festival sets.
