Event details

Chairlift formed in Boulder, Col., in 2006 with the obscure goal of making music for haunted houses (so says Wikipedia ... hmm, maybe they just have a good sense of humor). The trio of Caroline Polachek, Aaron Pfenning and Patrick Wimberly moved to Brooklyn a year later, developing a hybrid pop and electronic sound that sometimes recalled '80s giants like Berlin. Last year, Chairlift's song "Bruises" was featured in an iPod Nano TV commercial, spurring a rash of attention from the New York Times, Billboard Magazine, and PerezHilton.com.
