The Knocks, aka Ben “B-Roc” Ruttner and James “JPatt” Patterson have a certain adorable nerdy Chromeo meets Girl Talk vibe to them, lots of neatly placed samples, references you’re surprisingly pleased to hear (at some juncture last night they definitely had me screaming along to the Killers chorus “I’ve got soul but I’m not a soldier” which I didn’t expect to happen ever again in my whole life) and, in general, bring the party.
They will be @ U Street Music Hall this Thursday for this month’s edition of ALL THING GOLD and we have a pair of tickets to give away to it. YEAH. To enter to win, leave us a comment with a band we should, in your opinion, watch out for in 2012, and we’ll notify the winners by COB tomorrow. Cool? Cool.
