Tommy and the Tangerines



Who ’dat?: Matt Hendrick (guitar), Mike Carroll (lead vocals), Ian Hendrick (lead guitar/good looks), Ben Batchelor (drums), Patrick Coleman (bass), Laura Stratton (keys, vocals)

Pigeon-holed as?: Classic indie-rock

We’re not saying they are these guys, but they kind of sound like: Wilco, Spoon, New Pornographers

What’s their deal?: Tommy and the Tangerines are releasing their first EP, Main Squeeze, this month. The band combines the best of pop with classic jams on the guitar and keys, and don’t forget that splash of blues. In their own words they promise an entertaining live show with “fun, rock, roll, single ladies and handsome fellas.”
