Artist to Watch: Grass is Green

On any given week there are hundreds of shows to see in New York City. It’s impossible to hit all of them, so the experts on the My Social List team will be hand-picking their “can’t miss” artists for the week.

Who They Are: Andy Chervenak (vocals/guitar), Devin McKnight (guitars/bass), Mike Thomas (bass/guitars) and Jesse Weiss (drums) are from Boston and released their first record in 2010.

What They Sound Like: The bastard child of Fugazi and Pavement. Whilst they have many contemporaries in bands like Speedy Ortiz (with whom they just toured) and Big Ups, Grass is Green branch a little further out into angular guitar sounds and irregular rhythms.

What They’re Up To: New album, Vacation Vinny, was just released in January on Exploding in Sound.

Where To See ‘Em: Head over to Shea Stadium on the 13th of February to see them on a bill that also includes recent favourites, Slonk Donkerson along with Heeney, Please, and Washer. They’re also playing at Pianos on the 27th of Feb with Palehound, Celestial Shore, Bluffing and Howler (details).

Essential Listening: Here’s the leading track from the latest record, Sammy So-Sick.
