The XYZ Affair, Honeybee tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 6:46 pm February 27, 2008

I’ve been meaning to check out Honeybee for a long, long time. I even trekked out to The Waiting Room a couple months ago for that very purpose only to find out that they’d canceled right before their set. I’m keeping my fingers crossed tonight. Honeybee, btw, is three girls and two guys who record for Slumber Party Records. Check out their myspace.

They’re opening for Brooklyn band The XYZ Affair at The Waiting Room. I’ve been listening to XYZ’s music all morning — sort of a cross between Death Cab (the vocals) and Weezer or The Ark (the power pop) with funny, introspective lyrics. The New York Times described them as “a middle ground between the Beach Boys and Queen.” They must be talking about the falsetto. Catchy? You bet. Thunder Power!!! also is on the bill. $7, 9 p.m.

Tomorrow’s column explores a recent trip out West (as in West Omaha). Don’t miss it.
