$1 Beer Night: Modern Vices, Graveyard Club

DOORS: 9PM | SHOW: 9:30PM

$1 Beer Night is a weekly concert series that makes going out to hear great music more affordable.

Modern Vices is noir in tone and dripping with wild romanticism, there’s an aching passion and sincerity in the crooning that is juxtaposed by the fuzzy grit of guitars and a bright, pulsing beat. Their self described dirty doo-wop sound is an abstraction of 50’s inspired pop and post punk – but it transcends those styles with a more complex structure and solid melodies that stick in your head. The sound is at once fierce and unpredictable yet there’s a tenderness that makes it all the more compelling.

There’s no indifference in their message. It’s a call to engage. A romantic revolution.

Graveyard Club (Matthew Schufman (vocals, synths), Michael Wojtalewicz (guitar), Cory Jacobs (drums) and Amanda Zimmerman (bass, vocals) began inspired by a unique list of shared interests: the classic short stories of sci-fi author Ray Bradbury, the music of Ryan Gosling’s little-known band Dead Man’s Bones, and a fascination with both 50’s crooners and 80’s pop music. On their new record, Goodnight Paradise, these influences combine with synth-pop and dark surfy sounds to create a distinctly nostalgic feel for a place and time you feel you know intimately, but never really existed. It’s Twin Peaks in Cathedral Hill and Boris Karloff at the Under-The-Sea prom of your dreams.

Whether you grew up with New Order, The Cure, The Smiths, or Echo & the Bunnymen or dig artists like Real Estate, DIIV, Wild Nothing, The Drums, or Arcade Fire this band and album are for you. Graveyard Club draws from, and connects, these great artists while having a unique and expressive voice all their own. Goodnight Paradise is a beautiful record. It’s honest, melodic, catchy, layered and simple yet complex – it’s a perfect pop album
