Ashford Breaks, TONIGHT @ The Delancey, 11pm
Not sure if I've ever mentioned them on the blog or not, but one of my favorite "new" bands is a New York band called the Ashford Breaks. I call them "new" because, in fact, the band has been playing around New York for several years now, but have so far only released a four-song EP back in 2003 or so.
Over that time, the band's sound (and their name) has had some tweaks here and there, but I'm still comfortable calling them intelligent, Glasgow-inspired rock. Check out a couple songs from their website:
"High and Low"
The band has a new EP in the can, though I haven't seen a release date yet. Hopefully someone can put some legitimate support behind the EP, though, because I'm tired of being one of only 15 people at their shows.
Anyway, the band is playing TONIGHT at the Delancey, 168 Delancey St., between Clinton and Attorney, Lower East Side style. I can't make it due to my previously discussed quandary, but you should definitely head down and check them out. You won't be sorry.
