Have a fantastic 4th of July, everyone! I’ll be in NYC, listening to (if not seeing) the fantastic Feelies. I’m posting a song off of their classic debut Crazy Rhythms called “The Boy with the Perpetual Nervousness,” the title of which aptly sums up the band’s jittery, hyperkinetic charm. I first stumbled across them on celluloid, performing Bowie’s “Fame” at a high school reunion from Hell in Jonathan Demme’s “Something Wild.” I never thought I’d see them (reunited, no less!) on the front page of theNYTimes’ Arts section, but I’m incredibly pleased that they’re there. I hear they’re working on new music too, which is even more exciting.
No Wave addendum: the gallery show at Kerry Schuss has been extended through July! Go see it if you can!
