White Lies and Asobi Seksu

This season’s series of not-to-miss shows doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. There aren’t enough good things to say about the acts coming to Antone’s this Tuesday, May 24. Both White Lies and Asobi Seksu deliver powerful performances that will definitely keep you buzzing until their next visit through.

You might remember the band named Fear of Flying, a danceable indie pop band from England. That was White Lies in their former state. They’ve since developed a darker sound that’s been compared to Joy Division, Interpol, Archade Fire, Echo and The Bunnymen- essentially a slew of many awesome bands- and still quite danceable. Asobi Seksu goes in a completely different direction. A dream-pop band from Brooklyn with heavy vocal and guitar effects. Their latest album, Fluorescence has received rave reviews. Their opening song “sets the scene by plowing into beehive-like synth lines and warp speed washes of dream-pop that leave you wondering just what the hell is going on.” That sounds awesome.

Both acts will definitely keep us interested and wanting more. Make sure you get your tickets before it sells out. Or better yet, enter to win a pair of tickets for free by “liking” the Do512 event!
