The Pains of Being Pure at Heart w/ Ca-USE Co-MOTION, The Depreciation Guild @ Mercury Lounge, February 7th, 2009

The triumphant record release show for The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Fresh off of an 8.4 from Pitchfork. If you haven't heard of these guys, you're probably living on another planet, because they are all over the inter-web. I didn't take any pictures of them, because the place was packed to the brim with greasy hipsters and who wants to see that?

Ca-USE Co-MOTION played 2nd. Some of their songs are undeniably great. Fast, fun and nerdy indie-punk. The bass player jumps around a lot! =)

The Depreciation Guild opened. Nintendo shoe-gaze with 8-bit graphics. I wasn't really feeling it tonight, but that's just cuz I saw them a month or two ago, and it was too soon for a repeat. They'll be touring with the Pains, so catch 'em on the road.
