Okay, have you heard this song? If not, it’s okay… but brace yourself. I first heard this tune when it was buried deep on a mix CD made by filmmaker/blogger Michael Tully. And, as good as that mix CD was, I kept playing this one song over and over. I couldn’t stop myself. Who was this? Where did they come from?
BOB the Band comes to us from Austria, and you’re gonna have to ask Todd Rohal how their insanely catchy anthem, “Yes For Sure,” became embedded in the minds of indie film folks from around America. Rohal’s to blame, but we thank him for it. Check out the “Yes For Sure” video, to see/hear what we’re all loving about this synth-pop duo (who played two fun-filled sets at the awards party for IFFB this weekend). The band’s first trip to America continues Wednesday night in Brooklyn at Cafe Steinhof (422 7th Ave @ 14th Street) around 10:30 p.m. Be there, because I wish I was!
