If The Strokes have the ability to make a listener feel like they are in New York City, Bad Veins transport a listener to Cincinnati with its gritty and complex, yet humble sound. The vocals of Benjamin Davis are reminiscent of Brandon Flowers with darker overtones accompanied by the intricate beats provided by Sebastien Schultz. Bad Veins plays with Thrice, Kevin Devine and The Dig June 24 at Irving Plaza. All ages, tickets are $21.
