Forecastle Preview: Bad Veins

The phenominal Bad Veins will be performing at this year’s Forecastle Festival.  Bad Veins have been making crazy waves since they came together in 2006, including USA Today calling them the best act at CMJ 2007 when they were up against the likes of Bon Iver, St. Vincent & others.  Armed with a megaphone, guitars, keys, a telephone microphone, drums and a reel to reel named Irene, Gothamist claims “the two members in this band manage to sound like a full rock orchestra”. Bad Veins is probably the Forecastle band that I’m most excited to see.  I’m starting to realize that it’s the regional bands that are some of the most exciting bands of the festival, and this one tops the list.

Catch the entire lineup with previews of each band on our FORECASTLE 2009 page.
