Gig Guide: Bleeding Knees Club at Mercury Lounge, NYC

Bleeding Knees Club played Mercury Lounge in NYC on Tuesday, 6th March 2012

“this is so awkward. they should at least have TVs or something in here.” So was the conversation between Jordane Malane and Alex Wall of Bleeding Knees Club, obviously referring to the sparse crowd at New York City’s Mercury Lounge before their show on Tuesday night (March 6). while the club only filled in a little bit after that, the Gold Coast duo (who were joined by drummer Brett Jansch) tore the place down with a roughly 25 minute set that made us fiend for more.

Bleeding Knees Club play a hectic brand of punk/garage rock that also has some of the laid back sounds of the beach, if that makes any sense. with Wall on guitar and vocals most of the night, and Malane on the bass and harmonies, the band played tracks off the debut EP Virginity as well as the new single “Nothing To Do” from the upcoming album of the same name due out on April 17. for the last song of the early evening, Nothing to do producer Dev Hynes, aka Lightspeed Champion, aka Blood Orange and former Test-Icicles frontman, joined in on guitar while Wall prowled around the stage.

It may have been awkward at first, but damn it was the complete opposite at the end. We’re looking forward to seeing a lot more of this band in the upcoming months. Check out their video for “Nothing To Do” above and a gallery of photos from the show¬†below.
