Univox and Bandname at KFN Aug. 18

Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Wed. August 18, 2010

From the snotty high-energy alacrity of “The Countdown” to the candy-coated pop fuzz of “Wonder Why” and every wild howl in between, North Philly’s raucous trio Bandname busts out inspirited lo-fi garage rock like they’ve invented the genre. They’re little smart assess (c’mon, Bandname? – that’s so punk rock; it’s almost inspiring) and, in the fall, they will release their first LP,Breakfast, on North Carolina-based zine/label Self Aware Records. Bandname, along with Frost Watson, and Horse Thieves and Other Villains, will open tonight at KFN for hometown four-piece Univox, but before you jump on the EL, download Univox’s debut from New York indie label ROIR and The Deli’s August CD of the Month for a refresher on the benefits of seedy, debauched and polished rock ‘n’ roll. Look out for the unveiling of their new video for “Conan” next month. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $5, 21+ – Annamarya Scaccia
