'60s psychedelic-rock returns to Dublin for a one night show.
Before you go and see Tonstartssbandht, perhaps learning how to pronounce the name would be of great service. The Floridian duo - expressed as 'tahn-starts-bandit' - is bringing their live boogie rock show to The Workman's Club this February.
Andy and Edwin White, the guitar/drum duo, gained momentum in 2009 when playing gigs in Montreal, Canada. From there, their self-released cassettes tightened their relationship with the Montreal-based Arbutus Records. Now, the brothers are living in Brooklyn, New York, where they continue to explore the human experience "embracing the sense of urgency, pain, and ecstasy."
Described as having a choral pop and '60s rock vibe to their sound, the band's musical influences derive from other psychedelic bands, such as the Tokyo based High Rise and punk band The Bomber.
Have a taste of their music with a live home version of 'Alright' and a live medley video that includes the songs 'Alright, 'Susie,' ''Dad Beating Up Dudes Downtown', 'Orlando 1991' and 'Black Sea.'
