(some of) The British are coming! (to the Sco!)
Next Wednesday, Nov. 11th, indie favs Art Brut bring their wry brand of punkish, angular (British) rock to the ‘Sco. Associated (by Press powers that be) with Franz F. and Bloc Party in the early Oughts, Art Brut stood apart by virtue of their ironic “it’s not irony, it’s rock’n’roll” attitude. They’re touring behind their third album “Art Brut Vs. Satan” which is pretty sweet and has songs about comic books and Paul Westerberg being pretty much old.
The line between the charmingly self-aware/depreciating and the woefully obnoxious draws mighty thin. Art Brut, though, manages to stay on the sunny side, getting away with lines like: “I can’t stand the sound of the Velvet Underground…the second time around” and “we’re gonna be the band that writes the song that makes Israel and Palestine get along” because we feel like we’re in on the joke. (They’re talking to us, right? We understand irony and rock and roll! And having crushes on people too!)
Plus, they’re probably the kind of sarcastic British people we like, so come out to the ‘Sco as an act of reconciliation and good will. We’ll forget about that whole Revolutionary War thing, they can thank us for the Ramones and we’ll all just get on with it.
It’s fun, it’s (usually) smart and it’s only $7 with yr OC ID ($12 without).
