Live Tip - The Phenomenal Handclap Band

NPR: "The Phenomenal Handclap Band makes music that’s as sprawling and unwieldy as its name: To watch the group on stage is to witness what seems like several bands at once. With eight members — from hipsters and beautiful women to long-haired rockers and what look like everyday office workers — the group has been painstakingly engineered to generate a big, bold sensory overload. Fortunately, its sound is outrageously danceable, fusing grimy funk with cooing disco, retro rock and sweet pop. The Phenomenal Handclap Band was the subject of breathless buzz well before its self-titled debut came out this month, and its live show makes it easy to see and hear why." Sounds like a band you would wanna see live, right? Be at The Echo on Wednesday. It seems like their material is a little uneven, but if they have more songs like the one below, it should be well worth the price of the ticket...
