Ever since catching both MNDR and Restless People at the FADER-sponsored fort of radness during CMJ last year, both acts have been hotly-tipped to totally dominate 2010. This Tuesday, the two talents teamed up again for FADER Bowl at the apropos-venue, Brooklyn Bowl.
What more can I say about MNDR? She's probably the illest chick on the scene that you may not have on heavy rotation yet, and I've been dilligently working on changing that. You can learn a little bit more about her style and influences in my chat with her from last year.
Catching this gal live is always a treat too. Working with her industrial ghettotech knowledge, MNDR wows whether she's entertaining through her upbeat shoe-stompers or her emotionally-charged sit-down stunners.
MNDR's next NYC gig is on February 16 with WAVVES, before she heads out on tour with YACHT. Dig it!
Restless People...and there could not be a more fitting name for this dynamic Brooklyn outfit. The band, a vritual cornucopic-blend of band members from Professor Murder, Michael Bell-Smith, The Brothers and Tanlines, always provide a stellar show, in which the energy is cranked way up and the feet never stop moving.
Powering through notable tracks like Victimless Crime and Days of Our Lives, the boys kept us captivated through the remainder of the evening, as the floor filled with more and more eager ears. Especially slick is their infusion of airhorn and chanting their name throughout a number of their songs. It never fails to make me crack a huge smile!

Also, special thanks to DieselUSA for hooking us up with free booze and bowling throughout the evening. A super rad night was had by all in attendance.
