Jenny Broke The Window are an old school indie-pop band – indie music that addresses social alienation, the post 9/11 surveillance state and a distressed generation of selfless, constantly connected youth by defiantly producing fun, catchy pop music. In as such, their sugary tunes are as political as punk was in the 70’s – lashing out against a wave of social activists, economists and politicians doomsaying our future and saying “Fuck you – we’re gonna have fun”. Take a listen to their sugary guitar pop single Rum & Cola below and you too can lash out against the bleak future in a wash of catchy bass hooks, beautiful harmonies and accessible lyrics.
Head down to Surry Hills this Saturday to check out Jenny Broke The Window at the refurbished Standard Bowl – Sydney’s very own Bowl-A-Rama!
The band have already headed out to support The Fratellis (remember them?) on an east coast tour this weekend, but are shipping out el solo this Saturday (5th April) to headline a free show at the super new, super refurbished The Standard Bowl – Sydney’s only venue with booze, tunes and a bowling alley. The five piece played at Happy Music Festival way back in the day, and we totally loved their tunes, and there’s no doubt that their infectious indie music has some serious sticking power.
In support are the equally upbeat King Colour, who have been spreading some good vibes around the Sydney scene since about 2012 – you’ve probably seen their name on more than a few lineups at infamous fun-time venues like OAF and World Bar.
From what we’ve read, The Standard Bowl boasts four 3/4 size bowling lanes, which take up the space where the main stage used to be, with a super cool new policy of being totes free. The stage is now adjacent to the bar and the removal of the stage has revealed a huge warehouse sized window, letting in some much needed natural light during the twilight hours. If nothing else, the venue is a must see for any NYCophiles and anyone who frequents whitecollar, faux-bohemian venues like Frankie’s Pizza or The Soda Factory, and some tunes from Jenny Broke The Window are a super sweet bonus.
