Thursday To-Do: Harlem

Posted By on Thu, Sep 16, 2010 at 4:34 AM


9:30 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $5.

It's something of a relief that, amidst the mostly scuzzed-out crop of young guitar rock bands, sloppily endearing garage rock still makes the kids dance. That's the promise of Harlem, an Austin three-piece signed to the venerable indie label Matador that comes to Little Rock for the first time ever on Thursday. The trio's formula includes guitars that shred but mostly jangle, a stripped-down beat that's hard not to bop along to, hooks a-plenty and lyrics that're occasionally deranged (but always framed in a warm shimmy). Harlem's latest album, "Hippies," opens like this: "Someday soon you'll be on fire/Ask me for a glass of water/I'll say noooooo/Let that shit burn/And you'll say/Please please please put me out/I promise not to do again/Whatever I did to you ..." Look for the crowd to be singing along, loudly, with big smiles.
