MKNG FRNDZ Playing Bushwick Saturday

This Saturday Mkng Frndz are playing a special benefit house party at 315 Seigel in Bushwick. The benefit party is $10 for all you can eat and drink and will feature DJ sets by Jerk Party and Amos Mac. The party is at 315 Seigel St. #101 @ Bogart. Saturday, June 28th, Noon - Midnight. L train to Morgan.

Mkng Frndz is the latest musical incarnation of Tami Hart, who became a hearthrob for queer youth in the early 2000's.

"Influenced musically by Kaia Wilson (Team Dresch, the Butchies) and Kurt Cobain, among others, South Carolina's Tami Hart was just a teenager when she released her debut on Wilson's label, the pro-queer and feminist imprint Mr. Lady (Letigre, The Need). No Light in August is a startling debut, too, with Hart sounding like she has an infinitely older soul than is healthy for any 19 year old. On songs like the opening "Drunken Love Song," "You're No Good," and the eerily Nirvana-like "The Kids That Call Us Clowns," Hart's emotionally raw folk-pop is tragically beautiful and engaging as she tells her broken-hearted tales of love, loss, and loneliness. And while such topics aren't exactly original, these songs are shockingly disarming in their honesty and sincerity. So while her debut has its few moments of influence-on-sleeve songwriting, Hart is already hitting her stride on No Light in August. Surely, as they say, the best is yet to come." -Jimmy Draper, All Music Guide
