[the phoenix presents] This Sunday: Yale, Massachusetts + Squarehead (Dublin) + Camp Island + Camden

Happy weekend after SXSW, y'all! You know what that means -- tons of awesome bands on post-SXSW tour are passing through town.

One of those bands is garage pop trio SQUAREHEAD from Dublin, who play this Sunday at Great Scott with locals YALE, MASSACHUSETTS, CAMP ISLAND, and CAMDEN. We're co-presenting this one with the Dreamhouse Collective.

Earlier this year, we reviewed the Irish group's debut LP Yeah Nothing, writing:

Following the band's buzzed-about singles and spots opening for Titus Andronicus, Male Bonding, and No Age, Yeah Nothing is brimming with hit after hit of youthful punky power pop. With vocalist/guitarist Roy Duffy's Brian Wilson falsetto and sticky one-liners, plus bassist Ian McFarlane's harmonies, and Ruan van Vliet (of Tieranniesaur and Groom) on drums, Squarehead are a Wipers-inspired take on Phil Spector sensibilities. All 12 tracks — songs about girls, boredom, rock and roll, whiskey-induced adventures — could be singles.

Here's a video of the band playing one of their many catchy-as-hell singles, "Get Light", at The Roisin Dubh in Ireland:

Squarehead also play a stacked line-up tonight at LOREM IPSUM BOOKS in Cambridge with THE CLIPPERS, CAMP HOPE, and KRILL. Word on the street is they're playing a house show in Allston tomorrow night as well that you can get info about by emailing dreamhousecollective at gmail.

Did you know Squarehead are Morrissey's favorite Irish lo-fi pop band?

Did you know Yale, Massachusetts actually does not exist?

Did you know Lorem Ipsum Books has a vending machine that dispenses plastic eggs with hand-drawn artwork inside?
