Asobi Seksu @ the Echo 3.24.05
Looking forward to seeing Asobi Seksu out of NYC. When I first discovered them via jenyk/dot/com over a year (2 years?) ago, I emailed them asking about any possible west coast dates. I did the same when they later signed with a label and each time I received a short, but nice, response of " that would be cool, but we have no idea when" or something along those lines. Now with shows at the Detroit Bar tonight, The Echo tomorrow and a Spaceland show booked for April 2nd, I'm excited.
From their site:
- " What was once called shoegazer rock — blaring, shimmering, multilayered guitars enfolding confessions of longing and ambiguity — is back in Asobi Seksu, a New York band that wraps its guitars and keyboard around well-made pop melodies and the girlish ache of Yuki's voices."
-Jon Pareles, New York Times, March 5, 2004
