Pipettes Live in Concert (11/20)

Tuesday, November 20th, 2007

One of 2006's most beloved indie imports was We Are the Pipettes. The UK debut was a smart, impeccable, hip-counterculture take on tough/sweet '60s girl groups. Indie retro girl groups have come and gone, but few ever achieved the Pipettes' sharp vocal harmonies and catchy, hully-gully-inducing pop. Plus, it doesn't hurt that the gals do classic choreographed dance moves and have a top-notch backing band known as the Cassettes.


"Today, there's such a lack of any sort of self-awareness or a sense of humor," Gwenno says. "In a lot of the '60s girl groups, they were quite cheeky, and there was a quite a lot of sense of fun about it. And that seems to have disappeared. You either get a song that isn't really about anything, or you'll get a song that's desperately trying to be earnest."

Opening for The Pipettes will be Afternoon Naps and Monster Bobby. Beachland Ballroom and Tavern : 15711 Waterloo Rd, Cleveland, OH, 44110 : 216-383-1124 For ticket information visit www.beachlandballroom.com for updates on the band visit their site www.thepipettes.co.uk
