Friday Find – “Kind of Blue” by Teenage Exorcists – 4/18/14

One wonderful side effect of being friends with other music writers in town is being turned on to great music.

Marissa Mortati of Of Shows and Burritos and I regularly send each other info on local bands and touring acts coming to town. But when the fabulous Miss Mortati suggested I check out Riverside group Teenage Exorcists I accidentally ended up on a website for three teenage girls who graduated from Bob Larson’s School of Exorcism (that exists?)…

Spoiler alert: TE is cuter than the teen bible-thumpers

After running in terror I ended up on TE’s bandcamp page spinning their 5-song EP and picked out “Kind of Blue” as my favorite straight away. Today’s Friday Find is an infectious blend of pop and rock has the kind of charming lyrics that us romantical nerds find so appealing.“When I don’t have a clue, you can be my Nancy Drew” being my favorite line. The fuzzy guitar riffs will melt your heart as you daydream of your sweetheart with this one.

And Mortati made this adorable stop-motion video for the song which you will watch now…

Good – now that you’re hooked I have wonderful news for you – the band will play The Hideout next Tuesday, April 22 with The Silver Palms! Formerly Eleven, The Void and many other iterations, The Hideout was recently remodeled and- from the looks of the pictures- greatly improved. So get your tickets and come shimmy shake with myself, Marissa, and this fun band coming through town. I can almost guarantee no one will have demons exorcised by a teen with blonde highlights.

Upcoming featured shows:

April 18 – House of Blues – Marsha Ambrosius with Mike Vale – $20+ – Online

April 20 – Bar Pink – Rags and Ribbons and Dynamo Fixx – Free – Online

April 27 – Epicenter – Above Seclusion and IM5 – $20 – Online

May 2 – Swedenborg Hall – The Lovebirds (Album Release) – $20 (includes CD) – Online

May 9 – Belly Up – The Johnny Clegg Band and Jesse Clegg – $28+ – Online

About Jen Van Tieghem

There aren’t many things I love more than music. While life spins away at a rapid beat I’ve realized it’s important to spend it doing what I love – enjoying music in San Diego. I have a handful of favorite venues, a heart full of favorite bands, and decided to write about it.
