Upcoming Shows: R. Stevie Moore and the Sea and Cake (you have to choose)

In yet another scheduling travesty, tomorrow, NYC will be graced by the presence of both R. Stevie Moore (underground pop icon I reviewed here) and The Sea and Cake (poppy post-rock heroes we all [should] know and love).

How to chose? Well, R. Stevie Moore is a piece of pop history. I haven't heard the fellow live, but I imagine he will be playing short, quirky vocal-focused genre-crossing pop songs. The Sea and Cake have been around a while too, but aren't old enough to be your grandpa. Expect them to play instrumental-focused experiments with crazy beats and some jazzy influences, not to mention some strange pop melodies tossed in for funsies.

R. Stevie Moore
Cake Shop (152 Ludlow St., LES)
11 PM

The Sea and Cake
Music Hall of Williamsburg (66 N. 6th St., Brooklyn)
9 PM >> start time for opening acts
