Girls, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – Live @ The Rickshaw Stop

Tuesday night, San Francisco’s Rickshaw Stop played host to quite a line up of music, featuring our very own Girls and Brooklyn’s The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.  I was there primarily for Girls and was pleased to see them pack the house. I’ve been smitten with this band for a while, (especially their drummer – he rocks!) so it’s nice to see them get their due recognition.

But I must admit I was pleasantly surprised with the Brooklyn hipster quintet with the annoying name, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. I hate even typing it and I could never quite make it through the entire album.  Listening to it always felt like a game of name that 80s band.  While I still stand by my opinion that their sound is a bit redundant, they definitely played a powerful and most enjoyable set.
