On Jan. 10th Shea Stadium is providing a lineup of bands that bring all the feels with their angsty lyrics, heartbreak vibes, and crazy danceable melodies. All these guys play songs that’ll make you want to cry, but never stop dancing!

Doors open at 8pm and kicks off with Unreasonable Hours, then Shapes In Calgary, then Saint Marilyn, and then headliners, London Plane.

Unreasonable Hours are a four-piece band from Astoria and Crown Heights in NYC. There’s not much you can find of these guys online. New to the scene, their sound can be described as uniquely catchy, with slow beats, melodic and gentle guitar riffs, and they don’t seem to be afraid to experiment with their vocals—adding very high pitches then very low pitches in one song. In my opinion, it’s working

Shapes In Calgary is also a four-piece band from NYC. Their sound can be labeled as a new take on pop and dance music. It’s obvious they have pop-punk and emo music influences in their vibe and melodies. Their lyrics are full of trouble and confusion sang ever so smoothly, but their beats are uniquely poppy with catchy guitar riffs and slightly dark undertones.

Saint Marilyn busts out the synth and the impossibly danceable tunes that make you feel like you’re the romantic interest in a ‘80’s movie during an epic car chase. They’re a two-piece pop duo comprised of a vocalist/drummers and a bassist/keyboardist. Their songs are electronic, melodic, and devastating—the lyrics switch from desperate to empowered and get you feeling vulnerable, yet powerful.

Headlining is London Plane—a five-piece Goth-pop, synth-witch band that take you back to times when bands like Bauhaus, The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Blondie where all the rage. Their sound wraps around your head, almost creating a thick fog of music that makes you want to sway your body and try to understand the world all at once.

As you can see, this is going to be an emotional night with a lot of dancing, so be mentally and physically prepared before attending! It’s the perfect show for anyone to dance away all their frustrations and heartbreaks.
