Yes, we are quite fond of not-at-all-lo-fi Brooklyn rock band Mr. Dream. Yes, we know several of the dudes therein personally. And yes, there some of us were, Friday night at Glasslands, for a sold-out show capping a huge week for the band: Their debut album, Trash Hit, is out at last, well received by the rock-crit cognescenti from which several of the dudes therein originally sprung. And thus does dear friend-of-SOTC Nick Sylvester have occasion to tell L Magazine about how he used to take girls to the restaurant where Zach Braff worked at the beginning of Garden State. The Internet is magic.
Naturally, NYC Taper has a fine bootleg of the Glasslands show up this morning, catching the band in all its blunt, melodic, prime-Pixies anti-glory. Given the sparkling wits assembled onstage, it's a little disappointing the set list doesn't have more tracks called "[banter]", but for that I suppose you can just go to the restaurant where Zach Braff worked at the beginning of Garden State and wait for one of them to show up.
