Recommended Thursday Show: Magic Kids and Cults at Mercury Lounge

Ah, the infectious opening line, “Hey Boy, where’s your girlfriend?”  Magic Boys are almost sickeningly adorable, but still have plenty of well-deserved street cred to their names.  The Memphis group’s 2010 album, Memphis, didn’t earn quite as much critical praise as I thought it might have, but for a band that lives in the spaces of […]

Recommended Saturday Show: Ariel Pink, Puro Instinct, and Magic Kids at Irving Plaza

Well, you missed your chance to see Ariel Pink at a tiny venue.  The has-been-around-making-so-much-music-forever-but-is-finally-getting-the-deserved-recognition artist of 2010 is moving on up and out to Irving Plaza, for the best non-free show to hit this city since the summer touring slump started.  I feel a little guilty talking him up too much because a lot […]

My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009: 30-21

Photos: Magic Kids, Yellow Fever, Fergus and Geronimo, and The Beets at Market Hotel

Another Saturday, another show at Market Hotel.  I came out primarily to see The Magic Kids, whose song “Hey Boy” has been circulating around the internets, providing toe-tapping confusion about who these Memphis, Tennessee kids are.  I learned at the show that they’re also pretty much the same band as the Barbaras, whose myspace is […]

Infectious New Song You Probably Haven't Heard Yet: The Magic Kids' "Hey Boy"

Okay, I can find nothing about this band on the internet other than a rcrdlbl post and one or two other blogs saying, “I can’t find anything about this band on the internet.”  Their myspace page has 1,754 views at the moment (barely any), one friend, and no songs up.  They do have one show […]
