Incoming: Japandroids, April 19, The Trunk Space

japandroids

When I finally get around to posting my favorite albums of 2009 (hey, some people still have Christmas lights up, OK?), you’ll find Japandroids’ Post-Nothing on there – an album I came to late, but one that made an immediate impact.

Unfortunately, some people – ahem – don’t share my enthusiasm for the duo’s album or the just-announced April 19 tour stop at The Trunk Space in Phoenix. Tickets for the all-ages show are $12 and available here.

I’m not gonna sit here and tell you Brian King and David Prowse are breaking new musical ground, but there’s a reckless energy to Post-Nothing that I needed in what I considered a mostly blah year. There’s also something oddly comforting to hear a couple of young punk rockers going through something of a mid-life crisis, already reminiscing about the good times before they’re even over (at least for them): “We used to dream / Now we worry about dying / I don’t wanna worry about dying / I just wanna worry about those sunshine girls.”
