You may have heard about, The Market Hotel in Brooklyn, NY. It's this way out-of-the-way party place that puts on all these crazy energetic shows (like No Age and Dan Deacon and The Black Lips) that are all DIY and entertaining and, well, punk. Shows at The Market Hotel can turn into "a happening" at a crappy amp's notice. Happenings rule when they don't suck.

Not only did The So So Glos start that performance space, but they reside there too. Now that's living the lifestyle. These four guys, born and bred in Brooklyn, mix a wonderfully sloppy blend of angular punk, jangly pop and a little bit of surf-rock. I hear lots of Richard Hell (especially in the vocals) and a little bit of The Clash too.

The So So Glos definitely seem to be influenced by the glory days of punks past. But by looking backward, these guys are helping to make punk's present a much more entertaining musical era to live in. Their shows are a sweaty and, perhaps most importantly, FUN good time.
