British electro-indie duo The Big Pink (yep, they’re actually named after The Band album) played to an excited crowd at D.C.‘s the Black Cat in support of their debut album A Brief History Of Love. Their rough, scuzzed out but occasionally poppy sound worked well live, but for a band that’s publicly stated they’re not cool, they could have fooled me—just like they apparently fooled NME into naming them best new act.  If you missed them on this tour relax, they’ll be back in the US starting in March.
