I’ve written plenty about The Drums in the past, and had yet another opportunity to see them at last night’s Bowery Ballroom SOLD OUT show (1/13) – some pictures below.  Their one hour set included tracks off of their EP, Summertime, mixed in with new tracks that’ll be featured in an upcoming full length album – to be released later this year.  I won’t go on about them because I’ve said plenty in previous posts.  I’ll let others tell you:

“New York’s official Coolest New Band…this might be the most contagiously energetic NYC band of the past 10 years.” — NME

“Effortlessly mixes two disparate styles – Joy Division’s brooding, post-punk vibe and a strong dose of Dick Dale – into a jumpy, three-minute jam that’s catchier the H1N1” — Rolling Stone

Voted #1 Best Hope for 2010 – Pitchfork
