Clementine & the Galaxy headlines Knit on July 10th

Clementine & the Galaxy were amongst the critical darlings of last year’s underground music polls in NYC. Lately, however, the group’s tight electropop sound has evolved in a vibrant techno direction, which obscured singer Julie Hardy’s soaring vocals on the band’s newest material debuted last month at their Spike Hill show for The Deli’s electro showcase. Clementine continue the transformation in a Knitting Factory show on Wednesday July 10th with Vandana Jain, Kodachrome and Virginia Plain opening. The mere fact that they are taking chances with their sound bodes well for the act and the larger venue should give them an exciting opportunity to earn their stripes. No pressure! - Brian Chidester
