 Fans of electronic music, dance-pop, and fun, take notice: Hot Chip is (possibly) coming to your town. I’ve been a fan of this electro band for years, so to say I’m looking forward to waving around imaginary glowsticks at their upcoming NYC gig (on April 9th at Roseland Ballroom) is a large understatement. The fact that the band recently added a female drummer (Sarah Jones, of New Young Pony Club) only sweetens the pot. I’ll be reporting ... Read More
