On Thursday, September 26 Lively Lucy’s is hosting up-and-coming The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die at Fallstaff’s.  Joining them is Skidmore math punk quartet Mugsy Boges for their first show of the semester. The World Is is an 8-piece group, hailing from Connecticut, rich with potential as they redefine a modern, relevant emo-indie rock scene with experimental tendencies, tight, versatile melody, and raw production. Their debut, Whenever, If Ever was released through Top Shelf Records this August.

Now, throwing it over to Ian Cohen of Pitchfork, The World Is “resemble Arcade Fire prior to Funeral, having made their name on a promising EP and unpredictable, cathartic live performances that feature nearly a dozen people making music at the same time… Whenever, If Ever fights against fears, societal expectations, preconceptions, and the metaphysical for the greater good of society, and I mean, for crying out loud, the cover just says jump right in and do it.”  The indie snob godfathers gave TWIABP’s newest record a 7.8/10, which is a huge deal.

Mugsy Boges puts on great shows with super impressive music. The Skidmore seniors released their debut EP entitled Sangfroid in September 2012, available on Bandcamp here. Check out both bands and support Lively Lucy’s.  They do more work on campus for bands and the music scene than just about anyone.
