Friday January 6th we’ve got a show to make us forget it’s winter. The Torn ACLs have a new record called Make a Break, Make a Move coming out and we’re making our monthly show its release party. This band is a happy-go-lucky pop-athon, cleverly making amusement out of the mundane and lead songwriter William Cremin’s own social awkwardness. They leave the akwardness behind as they step on stage though where booty-shaking rhythms and playful melodies that are built for a party take over, swelling as big as a modern Death Cab on a track like “Emergencies.” A wry humor is a constant and whilst considering the novelty of running a VP’s Beamer off bridge or anthropomorphizing a bass drum the newly-minted live foursome keeps the energy high for whatever’s your bag, a shy head bop or cutting a rug with a partner. If you want to impress a date by making a fool of yourself, this is the band to do it with.

Joining this pop bill are fellow light-hearted house party circuit veterans Horace Pickett and pop duo The Balloons. Horace Pickett has a player named Johnny Unicorn who does accordion, saxophone and bass clarinet? And that sax sounds pretty good.
