    Bachelors of Fine Art - The Squids, Bedcrums, The Circus Kids, Fellow Bohemian This event is 21 and over Bachelors of Fine ArtWebsiteFacebookTwitterLinksBFA (Bachelors of Fine Art) is a power pop band out of New York City. Although much of their sound can be traced back to post punk and new wave bands of the '70s and '80s, their pop sensibility reflects that of a group of kids raised on the likes of Pavement, and then later bands like The Strokes and LCD Soundsystem. Shimmering, jangling guitars mesh with soaring synths and gripping vocals, all anchored around an explosive rhythm section that blasts through the crowd of Brooklyn chill wave acts and commands your attention. If you don't buy it, listen to their debut single, "Skytanic," and check out upcoming shows to say you were there from the beginning.
