Not true, there's tons of joy here. People are joying all over the place. In this particular case the joy is actually Little Joy — a band that we have until now enjoyed more in the privacy of our homes than waving it around in public — who will be performing at Maxwell's in Hoboken tonight and for free at the Virgin Megastore in Union Square on Monday. For those not in the know, Little Joy is Strokes' drummer Fab Moretti, Banhart buddy Rogrigo Amarante and Binky Shapiro who was heretofore not famous (boooo). Little Joy also used to be a great dive bar in Echo Park, Los Angeles where you could pretty much pee wherever and hook up with members of the aging indie rock establishment. Connect your own dots there. Anyway, Little Joy, the band, just put out their great little album a week or so ago, and more recently released the first video from it, which you can watch above. And below, listen to Amarante do his best Casablancas on "Keep Me In Mind."
