Joseph and The Mercurials - Violent Femme

Full review to follow. As always, a wonderful day at Tim McCready's annual non-NXNE all-day barbeque/hangout/music extravaganza. Bands played in the basement, living room and backyard, and there was plenty going on otherwise. You can check out my photo album from the day on the MFS Facebook page.

I've been meaning to catch this group for a few months now, and while a sunny backyard might not be the natural environment for their "50's Blue-Eyed New Wave", it was a evidence that this is a band to watch — putting a lot of effort not just into the music, but also their visual presentation as well. (If you need further evidence, check out their stylish video.)

* Thanks to a commenter for passing the title to this one along.
