Discover Le Fit at KFN April 27

Ben I.R. started Le Fit when he was studying for his MFA at Mills College in California with some friends enrolled in its music program who were working on avant-garde compositions at the time. They eventually laid down some tracks that would make-up the band’s debut album Near Fit, which was mixed by Jonathan Segel (of Camper van Beethoven). Creating seemingly effortless indie pop gems, the band received some mild success in the Bay Area. But after experiencing disheartening sales for their sophomore album Sportif, the college buddies went their separate ways, and Ben moved to Philadelphia in 2008. Well, he has managed to put together a new version of Le Fit from the pool of talent floating in our local music community. They’ll be headlining tonight at Kung Fu Necktie with support from In Grenada and Gerhardt Koerner [of (The Sound of) Kaleidoscopes]. Honestly, within the first listen of his intelligent well-crafted pop tunes, you’ll be able to hear why it might be worth showing up this evening to see what Ben has been up to lately. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 Front St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman

Whether performing in a bar or on a barge, the Union Street Preservation Society radiates an authentic energy, ensuring a vibrant night of fun. They are just about to release their debut EP.
