Brighton, England-based girl group The Pipettes, whose retro Motown-inspired sound has been compared to the Shangri-Las, played a show presented by Popscene at the Rickshaw Stop on Tuesday, June 12. Kinder indie-pop group Smoosh opened the show.
Like all great parties, the BFD music festival had a raging after party at the uber hip club Mezzanine that featured live performances by hip-hop artist Busdriver, a special DJ set by the Faint and a performance by Brazilian dance group Cansei de Ser Sexy, also known as CSS.
