Tart: Tickling Detroit's Sweet Spot

Lately, I have noticed way too many bands taking themselves way too seriously and getting way too in to themselves. The Detroit music scene has again become too good for itself and it's effecting the quality of the music that is being played and being released. Don't get us wrong, there haven been some great release this year, but even a lot of bands that we previously dug are getting way to serious for our liking. It might be hard to believe, but sometime people like music because it is fun, and sometimes they go to a show to have a good time. Personally, I like to go out and move and dance when I catch a live act. Everything from Tunde, to Flint Eastwood, to Snakewing can get me moving and that's what I'm looking for when I go to a show. The art of performing has been harder to find, but alas it still exists and we can guarantee it will be in full effect at this show, as one of our longtime favorites The HandGrenades help release the newest recording from one of our new found favs Tart.

Tart is a duo self described as electro new wave that can get you dancing while blowing your mind. Adam plays guitar while Zee belts her little heart out and shows how these elements perfectly combine to get you going. The band is on the verge of releasing their latest recording, These Are Not Love Songs, which they worked on in the comfort of their own home. They promise that this recording will be a little darker than what we have seen in the past, but you will still be able to get up and move around during the show. You can check the new album out here and more music from the band here.

We also had a chance to have dinner and chat with the the band a couple of weeks ago at Zeke's Rock and Roll BBQ. I can assure you they are as charming and good looking off stage as they are when they get up there. Check out what Zee and Adam had to say.

This weekend's release show will take place on Saturday at 8 p.m. at the New Dodge Lodge in Hamtrack. They will be playing alongside The HandGrenades, Belterra and Fluffer. It is only $5 to get in the door or $10 with a drink ticket and the copy of the new album that is being released that night.
