Brooklyn's Fiasco create orchestrated chaos.

There are "kid bands" and then there are bands who happen to be kids. Fiasco are the latter (Editors Note: they're barely kids these days, as they've been playing shows in NYC for a couple years now). This is no Menudo. The young band is comprised of three teenage guys from Brooklyn who (so far) seem to have grown up listening to all the right stuff. They especially like Sonic Youth's feedback madness, Lightning Bolt's distorted bass messiness, and Shellac's scratchy rawness.

Make no mistake, this is punk rock. But there's definitely a Strokes-y element to their vocals that make their noise pretty melodic, too. And being good sharers, the three boys from school (that's for you, Hot Chip) like to switch up guitar, bass and drums duties to keep it communal.

Fiasco are fresh off of opening up for The Appleseed Cast in Los Angeles, so these young dudes should be nice and practiced and ready to bring it.
