Mono in VCF

Saturday, February 9

What is this? Mono in VCF at the Triple Door? Last time I saw these young, brooding Tacoma pop stars, they were playing to fewer than 100 people at Skate King in Bellevue (no joke)! Tonight they’re releasing—finally—a self-titled debut on their label Stylomusic. They’ve polished up their 12 songs, which were good enough in the first place to bring to mind (my mind, at least) the Velvet Underground, Interpol, and now-defunct local band Romance. Carry the goth-pop torch, lads, somebody’s gotta do it. Just be sure to keep doing it well. With the Elephants (CD release).RACHEL SHIMP
