Bombay Bicycle Club


Posted on April 9, 2014


Looking for some indie cred? Name drop that Bombay Bicycle Club show at Assembly on April 11. The (frankly adorable) British indie band are making a stop in Sacramento before they head on down to Indio for what is arguably the coolest music festival in the country, Coachella. Now, a band doesn't get invited to play Coachella unless they have it totally going on. So with Coachella already vetting these guys for me, my attitude is: If they're good enough for Coachella, they're good enough for me. Not to mention that Bombay Bicycle Club (BBC for short) has established themselves over the past few years as a force to be reckoned with when it comes to putting on a good live show. Their music is buoyant and irresistibly dancey; the band members bring their records alive on the stage. Their sound is unpretentious and warm. It fills up a room. It makes you smile. The BBC show will be a welcome break from Sacramento's far-too-frequent metal shows and rap shows. No offense to metal and rap, of course, but every once in a while you need that dash of solid indie rock to balance things out. Thanks, BBC. For more information, see here.
