This Saturday, March 13th, Tweefort Records will be bringing three great up and coming pop bands to Cafe Nine: Conversion Party, Standard Fare and The Cavemen Go.

New London by way of Brooklyn’s Conversion Party is one of the region’s better unknown bands, melting together garagey noisiness with some really solid melodies and arrangements. Their most recent effort ‘More No More,’ which can be downloaded here, is worth checking out for fans of classic but not cutesy indie-pop (Spoon seems to pop up a lot as a reference in reviews of the band). Having caught them at the Oasis last August, I can tell you that their brand of garage-pop translates well in a live setting, all the more reason to check them out this Saturday.

Also performing this Saturday will be Sheffield, England’s Standard Fare. Currently signed to Bar/None Records in the U.S., Standard Fare is touring in support of their new album ‘The Noyelle Beat’ (to be released stateside on March 16th). The trio, led by co-vocalists Emma Kupa and Danny How, has echoes of local heroes Mates of States at times, especially in their playful vocal interplay. Musically they alternate between straight up power-pop and just enough quirky asides to retain the listeners interest (I sense some Libertines influence now and then, as well). Regardless, their bouncy, pogo-ready melodies should make for some great live music.

Starting off the night will be the show’s only New Haven band (now by way of Boston), The Cavemen Go. And as a means of full disclosure, I play drums for the Cavemen Go. Suffice to say we rock and pop with the best of them and will only add to the awesomeness that is this show.
