When They Say Endless, They Really Mean It
After a couple years of merciful absence, word comes that Endless Boogie is making its return to the New York scene.
If you're unfamiliar with the EB, think of the absolute worst opening act you've ever seen - say, Morricone Youth or Baby Dayliner or Burning Brides - and then imagine listening to that act while being covered from head to toe in burning napalm while being forced to make out with Jocelyn Wildenstein, and you're still not quite to how bad Endless Boogie is.
Listen, I know it's a side-gig for a bunch of Matador people, but seriously, that's no excuse. I've had to sit through them too many times before legitimate Matador acts (Malkmus, GBV, etc.). Thankfully, this is a gig I can easily miss. The show: July 21st at Mercury Lounge, playing with Oakley Hall, Mike Wexler and Black Taj.
