Meet the Cheatahs!

Coming out of London with a sound pitched between My Bloody Valentine and Dinosaur Jr., the young band gets labeled as "shoegaze," but that doesn't seem like a particularly fitting tag for a group that operates with this much surging energy.  It's newly released self-titled record does drift along on a bed of pink-hued, Kevin Shields-esque guitar fuzz, but the best tunes on the record rip forward with punky propulsion. Taken together, it's an intoxicating combination.

The band is playing Bunk Bar this Saturday, Feb. 22, and we've got tickets for you. Just email with CHEATAHS in the subject line, and we'll inform the winner when the contest closes today at 3 pm.
