The word "Monday" strikes fear in the hearts of most people. However, new pop-rock band Hey Monday does quite the opposite. Barely out of high school, this new upbeat band lead by Cassadee Pope has already created quite a buzz. Hey Monday recently released their first album Hold On Tight which was co-created by Columbia Records and Decaydance Records. The album produces a hyper pop sound fused with typical angst-y teen oriented lyrics. Regardless of the subject matter these passionate youngsters' beats still got under my skin and got my foot tappin'.
Hey Monday plays tonight at 6 p.m. at El Corazon.
Catch them at El Corazon tonight along with The Friday Night Boys, Stereo Skyline, The Bigger Lights and Seattle's This Providence, as a part of the MySpace Music Lets Make A Mess Tour. I'm sensing many spontaneous dance parties as the show is sure to be high energy. But beware, these bands sport a few Jo Bro haircuts and judging by their lyrics may be attracting a slightly younger crowd.
