Amazing Baby headline the Mercury Lounge on Friday, November 28 and Saturday, November 29. Tickets are $12 and available here and here.
Brooklyn breast-feeders Amazing Baby had already displaced 115-pound monster children and three-armed infants as their namesake’s top Google search result when front Baby Will Roan supplanted Meg White for #30 on NME‘s equally absurd “Cool List.” This can only mean one thing: a future Converse deal. Or at least a ventilated shower.
Sneaker sponsorships and model wives and backyard motorcross tracks may very well await–Amazing Baby’s Infinite Fucking Cross EP is four songs of sheeny, Pulpy lifestyle-pop, perfect for goosing girls at the Cake Shop. For now, though, Will Roan gets mail in Greenpoint, sleeps on the coach “like an old man,” and has tomato purée stuck on his fridge’s shelf. Watch out for the toilet-side Penthouse and Will’s Xanax eyes in the third episode of our very own Indie Cribz.
The songs featured in this episode are all from Amazing Baby’s Infinite Fucking Cross EP, available here for free.
