The Daily Shortlist March 25
Micachu & the Shapes take pop music and turn it on its head adding disoriented electro beats, live instrumentation, and vocals. Yeah, it’s been done before, but here it’s slightly different with the addition of frequent stuttering rhythms that make them feel slightly annoying at first but by the end genius. Let’s face it, San Loco does not serve the greatest Mexican food ever. But it certainly isn’t bad. The prices are inexpensive, you can get a heaping amount of nachos for as little as $3.75, and telling by the heavy traffic, the place is doing just fine. What I like about Max Fish is that it’s a local bar for local artists. It’s walls play host monthly for art exhibitions, there’s a pool table in the back, and drinks aren’t pricey, like many new bars springing up in this neighborhood. For one of the best cupcakes in the city, Sugar Sweet Sunshine has 10 varieties, on top of cakes. Try the Sexy Red Velvet or the Bob, a yellow cupcake with chocolate almond buttercream.
