Money Where Your Mouth Is: The Difficult

Posted By on Mon, May 21, 2007 at 6:11 PM

In Which the Scene Music Staffers Stop Debating the Relative Authenticity of Avril Lavinge and Let a Band Speak for Itself Band: The Diffficult Hometown: Akron Sounds like: "Vintage postpunk/indie pop. What Wire might have sounded like if they were trying to sound like the Kinks, yet never actually had listened to the Kinks nor fully conceived the concept of Wire and therefore ended up sounding like neither Wire nor the Kinks." Fun fact: "One of us used to write for Beavis and Butt-Head." Playing: "The Lime Spider (207 S. Main St., Akron, 330-3762-2350) Thursday May 24. With The High Strung (ingenious Detroit pop) and The Same Things (young Akron heartthrobs)." Why You Need to See Them: "This is the latest in a series of elliptically casual, maddeningly infrequent, meticulously rehearsed reunion shows. And, well, you just never know." -- David Giffels, guitar/vocals
