Micachu Great Scott July 16th

Micachu's album Jewelery is an odd little thing. The first time I heard it I wasn't certain about it and decided to not bother any further.
Somehow the album made it into our SXSW mix and suddenly it became indispensable.
The album, written primarily by Londoner Mica, a unashamed tomboy, at first hearing is discordant with out of tune guitars, after a few listens you realize the complexity and depth behind each track.
The next test was with all the different sounds evident within the music was this a wonder of production or ingenuity by the musicians.
We opened SXSW 2009 by watching Micachu play Ms Bea's a low key gravel based back yard of the best kind of dive bar out east of the main 6th st drag.
There the trio pushed everything to recreate and surpass the songs we had heard previously. Totally won over I beg everyone to take a listen not once but twice then a third time then in awe I suggest you visit Great Scott for a precious evening in the company of three very young very talented musicians.
