Brooklyn lo-fi pop band Beverly will headline Boot and Saddle tonight. The group originally started as a project between Drew Citron and Frankie Rose (of Crystal Stilts and Vivian Girls). Since then, Citron has added band members Jamie Ingalls (from Chairlift) on drums and Scott Rosenthal on bass. The band just released their debut album Careers in July. They also released a video for  “Out on a Ride” off of Careers., shot with a VHS camcorder to give it a vintage, DIY feel. Watch it below. Beverly will be playing with local indie band Roof Doctor and fuzz pop duo Tender Vision. Get more info about the show at the XPN Concert Calendar. Continue reading →
