The fine lads in GENTLEMEN HALL have been granted a stay of execution by rock radio. We had so much fun partying with last month's Local Exposure artists a few weeks ago in Allston, that WFNX has hooked up a free show with Boston-based pop-rock sextet tomorrow night at the Hard Rock Cafe. Consider it another homecoming -- the band spend most of April on the road for their Spring Fling tour, and are now back in Boston ready to take on the summer.
Tomorrow night's gig is presented by Dunkin Donuts, and to get in, all you gotta do is RSVP.
Last month, On The Download helped kick off their Local Exposure campaign by hosting the uber-slick Flam Clap remix of "Close To Me" as our Mp3 of the Week. Grab it if you didn't the first time around; here's what we wrote back then:
Gentlemen Hall are on a nonstop grind. After 2011 saw the Berklee-bred synth-pop sextet perform at the Billboard Music Awards, secure two Boston Music Awards (including Pop Rock Artist of the Year), and tour the country from here to there, the new year has been all about hustle. The band re-released the When We All Disappear EP for free download last month, kicked off their 13-date Spring Fling tour this week, and are letting the remixers have their way with their already vibrant, glistening brand of electro-pop. To celebrate being named WFNX Local Exposure artists for April and their hometown gig this Saturday at Brighton Music Hall (presented by Boston Accents and also featuring Freezepop and Art Decade), G-Hall teamed up with Boston production crew Flam Clap to funk the fuck out dance jam “Close to Me,” turning the beat inside out, whooshing it across starry indie-electro blasts, and creating a gyrating throbber that’s as hot as the original.
