For those not already in the know, this month’s Artspace Underground installment will be occurring tonight at New Haven’s aforementioned Artspace gallery. Performing will be New Haven/Boston’s Shark as well as Bridgeport’s Saint Bernadette. Shark (featuring members of Apse, The Tyler Trudeau Attempt, Chaplinesque and Instructions) are coming off a wave of glowing press for their 2009 self-titled album including mentions in the New Haven Advocate, Boston’s The Phoenix and a placing on iTunes‘ 2009 year-end best of. Their shoegaziness is apparent from the get-go with Dave Riedel of the New Haven Advocate describing their music as “a good candidate for listening in the car late at night or putting on the headphones and drifting off to wherever you want to go.” Joining Shark will be fellow CTers Saint Bernadette. Led by producer and guitarist Keith Saunders and vocalist Meredith DiMenna, the quintet offers a boozy mesh of psychedelic-meets-arena rock, with inflections of jazz, all candy-coated into sing-along choruses. I’d say this sounds like the perfect show for a rainy day in New Haven, so get yourself downtown now!
