Harlem @ Mercury Lounge

Harlem played a TON of shows in their native Austin during SXSW but I never caught them due to my over-packed schedule. So ironically I catch the oddly named band in NY at an early show. I was surprised the show sold out at 7:30, but then again they have been generating a lot of buzz for their energetic live shows and self issued album Free Drugs. They played a fun set of surf punk and the trio switched instruments mid set. Although I wasn’t blown away from their live show, they are still very young and finding their sound.
