So What Do Those Brazilian Girls Do?

For a while now, Iíve been a trifle upset with The Loft for not booking Twelfth Planet, but I think Iíve forgiven them since they brought in Brazilian Girls on Wednesday night (now that I’ve recovered, I can write about it). Gotta love that name ó it leaves so much to the imagination!

Proof of this came when we walked up the stairs to enter the venue when a man standing on the sidewalk in front asked, ìExcuse meÖwhat do those Brazilian Girls do? Who are they?î I thought about responding, ìOhÖthey might do some ëspecialí dances if you throw them a quarter,î but Alex replied politely that they were ìjust a band.î The man looked sorely disappointed, which indicated that he would have been happier with my answer.

I, for one, was thrilled that Brazilian Girls is not a group of bikini-wearing, sexy-dancing females, but a kick-ass band from everywhere that formed in New York. Only one of them is a girl, and none of them are Brazilian, but their music is amazingly original and carries a universal appeal.

The Loft itself is a pretty cool spot. Itís not as big as it appears to be on the web site, and the drinks were a bit expensive. BUT, the sound there is fan-freakin-tastic and the bartenders actually know how to make big, strong Long Island Ice Teas. Besides, they seem to be one place in town thatís not afraid to bring in musical acts that might be considered ìout thereî in a very non-indie rock way.

    Any band that has a song with “Pussy, pussy, pussy marijuana” in it is alright with me.

    It was a great show-I too can say that after having a few days to recover. It’s not often these days you see a band who seems to be having as much, if not more fun than the audience.

    Eh. Doesn’t “universal appeal” imply that everyone should like it? I don’t. So much for universal.

    Ganjaman –
    I think if the phrase “universal appeal” meant that EVERYONE likes it, no one would ever use it. In fact, I can’t really think of any one thing that absolutely everyone is guaranteed to like…everything is based on your perception and perspective so who knows how one person or other feels about anything (unless we took a worldwide survey on a random sample of items)?

    The phrase is used to communicate that people from different backgrounds, cultures, persuasions, etc., seem to dig one particular thing – in this case, the music of the band Brazilian Girls.

    As for the fact that you don’t like it, oh well – to each his own.

    How about “wide appeal.”
