Nico’s Gun Locked and Loaded at KFN Sept. 12

Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Sunday, Sept. 12, 2010

There’s something dapper about Philly indie rock four-piece Nico’s Gun.Tracks like “Dirty Girl” and “Modern Cool” play out like silken dancefloor pop jams with their underlying traces of disco and funk and overall sexy struts can’t help but be fetching and denim chic (or should I say royal purple chic ala Prince). And the distortion-heavy hip shakes of “City City” hint at the much beloved late ‘90s indie alt-pop of Imperial Teen and the Dandy Warhols – and we all know those two were the musical wet dreams of every slacker-hipster (slapster?). Even the stripped down, minimalist hooks of “Pink Roses” with its slight vocal echoes, sultry electric licks and calipered percussion, breathes unbridled coolness. Really, they’re super hip almost to the point of nauseating, but truly danceable. Don’t trust me? Then school yourself tonight when Nico’s Gun takes the stage at KFN with Brooklyn bands, Monuments and The Courtesy Tier. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $5, 21+ – Annamarya Scaccia
