Pascalle + Shows in Boston This Week

I never listen to bands that friend request me on Myspace, because what's the point? I don't want to be a jerk, but if you non-ironically list Fall Out Boy as an influence then you're not going to get my respect. It's like, seriously dude, I'm more likely to ask you for eye-liner application tips than a copy of your shitty pop-punk demo. So last week I mistakenly opened a friend request from a band named Pascalle. Before I could groan and exit the page, their music started and I was pleasantly surprised by their quirky mix of folk, indie pop, and psychedelia. The New York City band writes some really interesting pop songs in the vein of The Shins--though I think fans of bands as diverse as Man Man and Cold War Kids will totally get down to their songs.
