Hell yeah, baby! The Hell Yeah Babies play The Footlight Bar on 03.29

Power pop’s deliciousness derives from its embracing of catchy tunes, bold personalities, and playful theatricality. But it's kind of like an ice cream sundae: take an ingredient out, and it kinda sucks. Astoria's The Hell Yeah Babies are able to serve this genre with a cherry on top through their blend of garage, glam, and Costellesque vocal melodies, taking us on a musical ride that flashes rich harmonies, intrepid guitar solos, and enough showmanship to make Broadway’s musicals blush. The Hell Yeah Babies' 2018 record All The Things That You Believe is evidence that this group is working hard and aiming high. See them live at The Footlight Bar on March 29 in Queens, NY. - Rene Cobar
