"Editor's Pick"

"The Boy Bathing is 22 and mostly appeals to kids whose parents didn’t let them watch TV or girls who write in books that fit in pockets. He is disliked by most Republicans, oil mongers, and corporate types, and is misunderstood by happy people; they think the Boy Bathing sings sad songs." That’s a self-explanation by you know who, a Brooklyn resident and splendid example of the nu-singer-songwriter esthetic that’s been resonating on the indie scene for the last several years. Operating with only a well-picked acoustic guitar, a runaway imagination, and a love of words that I probably can’t capture in one phrase, the singer is a convincer. He’s both naive and wise, and the blend is fetching. He avoids the typical chords and templates, and the revelations are many. As far as subject matter goes, it’s an open field. One tune concerns a trip to Mexico and an emotional run-in with a rural family; another deconstructs a romantic interlude with the exacting scrutiny of a CSI operative. Each has a moment that might make you wince. But the winces are few and are trumped by some truly fresh thinking. He’ll share the stage at AS220 (115 Empire Street, Providence) with Christopher Monti, Andrea Lafazia, and Anthony Loffredio. Admission is $6. Call 831-9327, or head to www.as220.org

Bio

The Boy Bathing is 22 and mostly appeals to kids whose parents didn’t let them watch MTV or girls who write in books that fit in pockets. He is disliked by most republicans, oil mongers and corporate types and misunderstood by happy people; they think The Boy Bathing writes sad songs.

Right now he lives in Brooklyn and works a crappy day job but thinks that with enough friends and people who like his music that one day he won’t have to go to work and instead will spend his days on TRL.

Book The Boy Bathing for a show because he will pretty much play for free. He wants to play shows with other bands who you like and will also do cool things like play in your living room when you invite your friends.
