Black Taxi tickets are available at the door for $15, or try an outlet for the advanced price...NO MORE SALES AT WMNF, by phone or on-line (sorry) ~ We hope to see you there!!

WMNF listeners who have seen Brooklyn's Black Taxi in their recent visits to the area know that they are an incredible live act, smashing an anything-goes punk ethos together with pop sensibilities, unparalleled energy, and brilliant songwriting. The result is a raucous stage show, heavy on harmonies, spitfire guitar licks, body paint, and all manner of instrumentation. Their lead singer Ezra Huleatt is a non-stop dynamo, one of the most exciting frontmen in music today. Their style has been described varyingly as "grit-pop" or "dance punk", and though their songs hint at the Talking Heads, Cake, and Daft Punk, they are driven by something entirely new and infectious.

The Laurel Canyon

Local musician Shawn Kyle plays with so many bands we cannot keep track; they are all good! We are especially excited about the Laurel Canyon project with master drummer Max Norton which is getting lots of attention from music fans. If the Black Keys were southern, and influenced by Blue Cheer, that's what's the Laurel Canyon sounds like.

The Happiness Machine

A young, talented indie folk-pop band who were a big hit at Tropical Heatwave, The Happiness Machine is led by singing sisters Kathleen and Shaundra McGuire (formerly of Grecian Urns) and guitarist Nick Arnal (formerly of The Sun Society), and they are joined by drummer Evan Eubanks and organist Jackson Davis. If you like dreamy vintage indie pop mixed with world beats and tight homespun harmonies, you will love The Happiness Machine.
