All the way from New Zealand comes the dance punk quartet by the name of Bang Bang Eche. October marks the beginning of their North American tour and our fine city is one of the places they will appear. Visiting the states to promote their greatly offensively named EP, Sonic Death Cunttt, BBE has literally traveled the world. Check them out at the Magic Stick on November 2, right after you're done being hungover from Halloween.
Consisting of members Zach Doney (vocals), Charlie Ryder (guitar and synth), James Sullivan (drums), and T'Nealle Worsley (guitar and bass), the teenage band recorded their new album in just three months in their hometown of Christchurch, New Zealand. Known for their energetic shows, BBE has emerged from the basements and dive bars and has apeared at outdoor festivals such as Australia's Big Day Out, The Great Escape in Brighton, SXSW, and the CMJ music festival in NYC.
Gaining ridiculous amounts of success with their first album (placing in the Top 5 Most Added Albums on US College Radio) in 2008, BBE has once again come to the states with hopes of making music lovers dance their asses completely off. New York radio station KEXP included Bang Bang Eche in their top 5 performances of the CMJ festival along with such indie juggernauts as Broken Social Scene, Lykke Li, Fujiya & Miyagi and Vivian Girls.
With such esteem from the underground music industry, it would behove you to see Bang Bang Eche while they're in town. Tickets are a meager $10 and they will be playing with Har Mar Superstar, an American artist who could use some recognition in his own country.
