Pretty Girls and Lasers

(Pretty) Girls and Lasers.

Now what first grabbed my attention is their name. What is not to love about pretty girls or lasers? It's such an awesome title! It may be a little bit hard to live up to the expectations since they aren't girls or lasers but... they make this up with their electro-indie remixes.

These guys are New York DJs who spread the indie sound in small clubs around NYC. I love this idea, because I hate going dancing in places that play crap music. These guys create a bridge between indie rock and dance music for the alternative masses and judging by the 10 minute and hour long mixes up on their official site, it sounds like a fun night out.

When you're a fan of indie rock, there are only a few places in the city, even in our indiephilic city of Toronto, where you can access this kind of scene.

If you're in New York, check these guys out. Their next show is tonight:

And as a special incentive, they debuting their remix of Regina Spektor's "Folding Chair" and giving a copy to those in attendance. Here's the original (not yet remixed) for your perusal:
