Featuring members of post-punkers Crystal Stilts and punk-punkers German Measles, Beachniks are a comically sunny proposition, writing songs about Coney Island ("Coney Island") or Brighton Beach ("Brighton Beach"). They seem to embrace the fuzzy, beachbound, kiwi-esque fuzz-goop of feted locals Real Estate without the bummer of suburbia holding them back. Tonight is their 7" release party for their upcoming record on Captured Tracks. With the Missionaries, the Honeydo's, Knight School, Moonmen on the Moon, Air Waves, the Nymphets, Juan Wauters, and more!
