This afternoon I went with Colette, Adrienne, Karen, Tammy, & Mary to the Prop 8 protest, and then we walked up to the North End and got some gelato.
Anyway, it's time for a pop punk weekend...
Because all I've been listening to lately is Cheeky. I was listening to a ton of Little Lungs, which led me to them (Angie is in both bands). Cheeky are an awesome four-piece from Brooklyn/Long Island. Feminist pop punk that I can't get enough of. They're goofy, they're silly, but mostly they're just awesome.
They released their EP Choke on a Cheeseburger digitally on Quote Unquote on Christmas of last year and then as a 7" on Freedom School in June. Six tracks of cheeky (yes, their name is fitting) punk that tells it like it is.
Cheeky also put out a 7" as part of Art of the Underground's singles series. I love all these things, but my favorite may be an acoustic version of "Get Outta Here" on If You Make It's Pink Couch Sessions. Watch it here. They've got a tour coming up (headed south though), so check their schedule and get out and see them! They'll also be releasing a full-length next year.
