On average, I do not have much of a stomach for anything close to the realm of power-pop. It’s far too conservative of a sound and approach to consider having but a few songs in your collection to think of it as ‘great’ or ‘ever-lasting.’ Regardless, when it comes to local talents, bands like Katie’$ Money, which I saw last night at Pete’s Candy Store here in Brooklyn, make terrific live shows good to take your best girl out dancing.
Well, without my best girl to go, a good friend of mine and I sat and appreciated the sheer power that Katie’$ Money brought to the tiny Pete’s stage. In your face, pleasantly aggressive, and with one hell of a rhythm section (it’s always nice to have a bassist play double-duty and be both rhythmic rock and melodic-wave for your band), Katie’$ Money put on a fantastic set of dance-able rave-ups and spit-in-the-face ballads that still blazed by.
As far as I know, their next show is next Tuesday at the National Underground (where they’ve held a Tuesday night spot this month), but check them out on Facebook for future dates. Below, is their latest single, “Dutch Expectations,” but their website has even more! Dig it!
Hope you can make it!
