Why? and New Bomb Turks at Nouveau Casino

July 8: Why? (Indie/Folk/New Wave) (Oakland, US/Anticon)
Hailing from Oakland, California, Why? is part of the Anticon. indepedent artist collective formed in 1998 to promote underground rap and hip-hop. Though the lyrics in some of their music certainly reflect these beginnings (fabulously clever rhymes and rhythms), Why? also draws on folk, rock, new wave, and electronic to create a fantastic sound all unto their own. Okay, if you must compare to someone else, think They Might Be Giants, Flight of the Conchords and Sparklehorse meets Modest Mouse (and steals some drops of mojo from Del the Funky Homosapien).

July 9: New Bomb Turks (U.S.)
Excellent garage band from Columbus, Ohio with nine LPs under their belts. Compared to the Sonics and the Saints (If you don't know them, now you do--go Youtube!). Should be a fun rockin show.
