Hacksaw Entertainment presents Brooklyn’s Telephoned, a new venture from Sammy Bananas (Fool’s Gold) and Maggie Horn (Good Peoples). “We’re like a cover band, but better!”
Telephoned was created when New Yorkers Sammy Bananas and Maggie Horn decided to recreate their own version of T-Pain’s “Can’t Believe It.” Neither a cover or a remix, the recording took subtle elements of the original and tweaked it into something entirely new, a track that shone in both on the dance floor and the radio (LA’s Power 106 for example). The hybrid sound is “Bottle service electro meets Triplets Of Belleville!”, as Maggie Horn puts it. ”Can’t Believe It” was such a success the duo went on to create an entire album of songs entitled “Off the Hook”, as well as an additional Telephoned EP on the forward thinking Fool’s Gold Records.
But don’t take our word for it. With the thousands of acts in Austin this year, Pitchfork’s Amy Phillip’s described Telephone’s performance at SXSW as “the most fun thing I’ve seen at SXSW so far.”
Sammy Bananas will be playing special DJ set as well. Additional support from White Girl Lust (Solid Bump Records) and Shane King (Hacksaw).
Oh, did we mention this event is FREE and there will be lots of FREE VODKA until 10?
