It’s 1776 at the Tip
It’s not about turning back the clock. It’s about a smoking little band from Portland, signed to the Dandy Warhols’ Beat the World Records label, that just played its first-ever acoustic set at a smoking little bar in San Francisco called the Tip. It seems clear these stylish 19-to-21-year-olds are looking at a future so bright. Which means that, someday soon, the fired-up crowd of about 40 friends and fam will be able to say they saw them when they were still cool. After 1776′s 45-minute show, their label-mates, the Upsidedown, dropped by for a brief, rousing set, with Altoids tins and a cash box as percussion. Above, a video fragment from 1776.
Later, this happened.
