TEENAGE HALLOWEEN & BLVCK HIPPIE
SUNDAY 3/12. Vino’s. 7 p.m. $10.
Teenage Halloween and Blvck Hippie are both bands designed to win over the outsider at a messy house show. Teenage Halloween — an emo group from New Jersey — brings tuneful and speedy power pop for the kind of kid who likes music with attitude but is a little intimidated by singers that yell and never smile, or for the newbie who wants to mosh but not too hard.
Blvck Hippie — a Black-fronted sad boy indie rock project from Memphis — provides jangly, “VHS-inspired” songs for the punk who actually prefers music that’s chill, or for the hardcore regular who’s realizing that maybe weed and booze make them more introspective than they used to. This stacked Vino’s bill is rounded out with locals Benadriil and Crying in Public.
