Suckers they are not
The half-filled room at Brooklyn’s Bell House Tuesday night was good testing ground for Suckers (no The, just Suckers) who will soon go from playing to a handful of their friend’s friends to hundreds of people this summer. With their pop/rock/electronic sound and a propensity for the keyboard (they play with four), Suckers are an appropriate pairing for MGMT who they’ll open for at an already sold out show at the Prospect Park Bandshell July 1st, followed by a month long residency at Piano’s where you can see them every Thursday night.
Why you should check them out: Their multi-instrumental know-how (the maraca-wielding lead singer can simultaneously drum and play the keyboard and then switch to guitar without missing a beat) and the ability to take pop to unexpected places.
Song that will hook you: “Get Your Body Movin.”
