ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

The Detroit-born quartet High Strung have a gift for nervy, agitated melodies that get under your skin as much as they make you hum along. There's a vague discomfort about life in general on These Are Good Times, but it's expressed in a joyful, uptight, cymbal-bashing sound that borrows as much from the Motor City's recent garage-rock scene as from the Beatles, whose "She Said, She Said" is riff-checked in "Throwaway." The New Wave revival has produced its first acolytes who love life as much as it drives them crazy. Isn't that why people write songs, anyway? With The Teeth and more.
