Food S†Δmps are doing a weekly residency at Bruar Falls every Wednesday of December 2O!o, and after the last good residency by Hooray For Earth at Piano’s, we fully support this as it will be, we think, louder, wilder.

The first lineup for this Wednesday, Dec 1st is:

8 MCDONALS
8:45 RED DWARF (mems. Sweet Bulbs & Fiasco)
9:30 BEACH ARABS
10:15 NIGHT MANAGER
11 FOOD S†ΔMPS
++DJ SET BY NICK GAZIN ((OF VICE MAGAZINE))

Sample video from the last Food S†Δmps we caught at Don Pedro’s.

The band, formerly known as Food Stamps, are now known as Food S†Δmps; this is, and shall be known as genre surfing. They have enough musical ability to be chameleon-like and adapt their sound, look and name to a new genre that’s being covered with massive regularity now. They also have the talent to choose to do this, because — controversial argument here — talent is the combination of ability and the passion to have fun with what you do. It’s the ‘throwing caution in the fire’, it’s the search for you own truth. Talent is not the end product that people then like or dislike, and however they gaze at it, it’s up to them, the kernel is the making of a “thing” and taunting and flaunting with that “thing”.

More event details are on the face page.

I think I might like this below song even better, also from the same 11/19 show at Don Pedro’s.

  1. nothing but love for tk and amy, but this is the stupidest thing ive read in quite awhile. I guess all you need to do to ‘genre surf’ these days is change outfits, add a different useless member and start the set with a different feedback arrangement. wowwww.

    Not sure who the “you guys” is in reference to, but I think the “we” are still around, right here.
