Sports of Kings + Strange Shapes play Cake Shop pre-Halloween party





Sports of Kings + Strange Shapes play Cake Shop pre-Halloween party

On Thursday night loungy indie band, Sport of Kings, will headline the pre-pre-pre Halloween show at Cake Shop. The band compares itself to a classy cocktail made of imported spirits with the most exotic elements being "songwriter/singer/guitarist Richard Kelly (imported from Dublin, Ireland)" and "Hong Kong’s tastiest percussion, so strong it’s banned in several American states...by Ian Chang". Each member provides his own punch that mingles well together, producing a sound that's at once reminiscent of Pavement and The Bird and The Bee. Sport of Kings will let loose and show up in some sort of spooky/crazy get-up and invites everyone who attends to come in a costume (no pressure, though). The show kicks off with a mystery band/artist at 8:00 PM, followed by the DJ styings of Au Revoir Simone's very own Erika Spring, then powerpop band Strange Shapes, and then of course, Sport of Kings. - Abigail P Devora
