Making Friendz LIVE in the loft TONIGHT @ 7PM

Making Friendz is a sweet, sweaty mixture of lo-fi punk and glossy pop, R&B and disco. This is the latest of Tami Hart's many projects--she was previously signed to Mr. Lady Records, released two full-length solo albums by the age of 21, and has performed with Le Tigre, Indigo Girls, The Gossip, Sleater-Kinney, Mika Miko and MEN, as well as received critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and The New York Times. Making Friendz's debut EP is sure to up all the punks who love to dance.
