Catch A Burning Star or Venues for a Video Venus?

March 12 - The Atomic Swindlers at Milestones 170 East Avenue, Rochester, NY.
April 1st - The Atomic Swindlers at the Club at Water Street located at 204 North Water Street, Rochester, NY.
April 16th - The Atomic Swindlers at Nazareth College, Pittsford, NY.
April 29th - New York Debut - The Atomic Swindlers at the Underscore, located at 90th and First Avenue.

You get the idea. It's hip spacey stuff with a retro 70s beat that's a lot of fun. The group could use a strong male vocal so that it didn't seem like a backup band for the femme fatale lead singer, but otherwise it's fairly far out stuff. Will SF fans dig it? Do they care? I don't know. I liked it enough to consider heading up to NYC for their big city debut April 29th at Underscore.

If you dig words, start with the lyrics of their lead song, which has gotten some significant airplay on XM radio and other hip venues. Or you can pop over to their website to ogle April, and listen to excepts from their tunes.

    Hey Tokyo, Andicar
    Mission control in Callisto
    I can crash without a sound
    Don't mean to bring you down
    But there's no heaven
    I wanted to shine like the silver surfer
    A cosmic queen of the stars
    Now I'm just a killer on a wave less sea
    Weightless and free
    Your voice is all that's left of me
    Did you walk on green today
    Did you feel the cool wind move across your face
    Did you raise your hand and
    Block out the sun
    Whisper my name and yours like they were one
    I hope your kindness
    Has left you strong
    One more revolution
    And I'll be gone

Float - Stargirl's Video Done in cartoon art's current fave form (hanna barbara meets sout park), here's a bit of video fun that channels a myriad of SF themes, and stars the way too sexy icon of April the lead singer. Warning: if it's too sexy, you're too old.
