I Like The Like


I remember hearing about The Like, like way over a year ago when they were releasing eps, like on their own.. and I remember thinking hmm, they're okay... and then seeing them in Teen Vogue and thinking hmm they're okay... and then the other day i was like browsing around online, and i came across The Like's flashy new website and see holy shit, they're signed to Geffen. When did that happen? Does Geffen sign every band right out of High School from LA? If so, here's a couple of heads ups... The Like Version 2.0 and The (lil') Doors


So yes, The Like's debut comes out in September produced by Wendy Melvoin (an original member of Prince and the Revolution), and co-producer John Goodmanson (Blonde Redhead, Bikini Kill, Deathcab for Cutie). They were in town last night to do the standard early Mercury Lounge showcase, before heading out on tour with Tore Me Anus.

Catch them at Jones Beach on August 17th.

I caught them opening for Sahara Hot Nights at the Stone Pony last summer, and was surprised how much I enjoyed them. Fun.

The name is awful, though. It's, like, totally teenage girl, totally L.A., and it's not the name for a band that ever plans to be a headlining act (You always have to say "...and the like.").
