Check out Team Robespierre!

Thanks to Nick for bringing this band to my attention and letting me know they'll be at Downtown Events Center this Thursday. Team Robespierre is a Brooklyn-based synth-punk band with snotty vocals, heavy beats and the occasional metal guitar. And if the photo above is any indication, they put on a heck of a show. Death Set, also from Brooklyn, will be with them.

While we're at it, here are a couple of other Downtown Events Center shows you should know about:

Sunday, March 2 (tomorrow night): Blue Cheer with Thunderlip and Rocket Cottage

Friday, March 7: RTX with Double Negative and Black Skies

Oh, and can someone tell me why this club requires an email or last name to be their friend on myspace, then won't even accept messages from folks who aren't on their list? I'd be a lot more likely to mention their shows if I had a better idea of what's going on there.

Yeah, I'd like to list their shows as well, but since they can't even be bothered to update their website, I'm not holding my breath that they're going to get any better at any other form of promotion either.
