Next Wednesday, January 27th Philadelphia’s Drink Up Buttercup will be joining New Haven’s The Cavemen Go for a show at Yale’s GPSCY bar. Drink Up Buttercup has been receiving a tremendous amount of buzz over the past year with some big press mentions via Pitchfork, NME and even the NY Times. NPR All Songs Considered described them as “psychedelic without being cheesy, this band sounds like a sinister carnival” while the Boston Metro said “they have a great melodic sensibility, but they’re also in love with the glory of cacophony and audience interaction” (see above video for an example). Drink Up Buttercup are currently playing some smaller shows as a run up to the release of their debut album ‘Born And Thrown On A Hook’ due out in March on Yep Roc, so best catch them before they become huge. Also of note, GPSCY will be opening their doors to everyone for this show (not just students), yet another reason to check out what promises to be a great show at a unique venue. Enough of my babbling, here’s the facts:


21+ / $5 cover for non-student members
show starts after 9pm

(Editor’s note: I play drums in the Cavemen Go. We’re pretty good. Drink Up Buttercup are truly awesome though.)
