[audio:] My First Earthquake – “Cool in the Cool Way”

This weekend, hear some decidedly un-grunge tunes at a venue full of divey appeal. Synth popsters My First Earthquake will be playing tracks from their party-perfect album, Downstairs, at Thee Parkside on Saturday.  The band is steadily gaining attention for their catchy tunes and spot-on social observations, and this dryly witty video doesn’t hurt either. 

My First Earthquake will be joined by catchy indie-pop-rock trio Ex-Boyfriends and Vitamin Party, who will be rounding out the night with a punky, booze-fueled set. 

9pm, $7, 21+.
