Win 2 Tickets to See Holly Miranda at Littlefield!

About one month ago...and hey, almost to the day too...we sat down and talked with Holly Miranda and got to learn a little more about the Brooklyn transplant via Detroit. Then she played a killer set at Bowery Ballroom...and while this is all fine and well, there's really only one way to best experience a Miranda show, and that's by hitting her upcoming gig at Littlefield on July 7.

Chew Lips Get Slick with NYC Debut at Littlefield

Chew Lips have long found themselves a spot in Beastonia...thanks to their intriguing dancepop arrangements, frenetically-charged flaxen-haired front woman and multi-instrumentalist backing mates. Their debut album, Unicorn, was released earlier this year to a load of praise, and rightfully so. This trio knows how to make you move, and more importantly, how to make you feel. Real feelings.

After having caught one of Chew Lips' sets down in Austin during SXSW, there was no way I'd be missing their New York City debut performance. Musically solid with a touch of whim and wit, the band has honed their skill playing a number of UK gigs over the past few years, but thankfully, brought their show Stateside for a one-off at Littlefield last night.

Running through nearly the entirety of their debut offering, Chew Lips kept the crowd entertained while showing great appreciation for the support shown by a full room of fans. Lead gal, Tigs, amused the audience by playfully toying with the crowd, almost embarrassedly telling them to "Shut up!" through a coy grin, as the applause came heavily after each song. Full set list as follows.

Eight
Play Together
Toro
Rising Tide
Seven
Slick
Two Years
Salt Air
Karen
Solo

Chew Lips head back across waters later this week for a string of live dates. Definitely a Beaston-approved "must see".
