This Saturday: West Indian Girl @ The Rickshaw

So we have to admit, when we saw West Indian Girl on this week's Rickshaw schedule, we kinda skipped them over and didn't investigate. It was only after perusing today's McSweeney's Recommends post that we went over and gave the band a look. We're really glad we did. Apparently they've been around for a few years now, but this is the first we've heard of them. The band offers up a completely accessible blend of poppiness, synth goodness, and sing-a-longable lyrics. For some, it might be a tad to saccharine sweet or borderline 70's kitsch, but we found it to be just right.

The band will be playing this Saturday night at the Rickshaw Stop. Tickets are on-sale now: $6 advance, $12 at the door.
