Above: TV on the Radio will be performing live at 4th & B on May 2nd, 2011 at 8p.m.
4th & B presents TV on the Radio on May 5th, 2011 at 8p.m. until 2a.m. One of most innovative bands of the 2000s, this Brooklyn-based quintet blends a slew of disparate elements —electronics, indie guitar rock, free jazz, funk, soul and a cappella doo-wop vocals —into a vibrant and arty sound that recalls Funkadelic, the Beach Boys, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Otis Redding and even Aphex Twin.
It isn't exactly pop music, but TV on the Radio earned loads of praise from critics and fans alike with its major-label debut, Return to Cookie Mountain in 2006, and its 2008 follow-up Dear Science.
