Film School traveled across this great country and made it all the way to the East Village to perform at The Mercury Lounge. Right down the road from me, I crutched my way over to meet my bro and see what kind of rock is coming out of the west coast. Margot and the Nuclear So and Sos played before, boasting two drummers, one who also acted as the hype by playing the tambourine and dancing to incite the crowd. The lead singer singing songs of girls doing coke in bathrooms and lost love, while the Rhodes keyboard was delicately guided by the cute redhead, I assume Margot. Film School came out with the singer stage right, setting the tone that the night was not about the ego of the individuals, but about the sound they produce. On tour to promote their new self-titled album, not even having all their equipment stolen could stop the momentum of Film School. The band used reverb and sweet bass lines to engulf the crowd in the west coast noise that’s propelled the band across the country. Check them out.
