Have you heard of Caveman yet?

They're coming to play Detroit this Thursday night at Lager House

Proud New Yorker Matt Iwanusa is the main singer songwriter, as well as adding percussion/drums to the band on record and live on stage. Guitarist Jimmy “Cobra” Carbonetti is born and raised on New York’s Roosevelt Island, and has been designing his hand-made Cobra Guitars from scratch for a couple of years now. Together with native Manhattanite Stefan Marolachakis (drums), Jeff Berrall (bass), and Sam Hopkins (synths), they form a tight knit group of proud New Yorkers who say: “The genre of music is hang out.”

Also on the bill is Hospitality who have a new CD to offer up the ticket winner
The band’s debut full-length will be released on Merge on January 31. The angular, intricate, and intelligent compositions of Hospitality signal a sophisticated new pop voice.

Singer Amber Papini’s idiosyncratic songwriting and incisive lyrics coupled with the band’s rich arrangements on its self-titled debut explore youth, New York, and the bittersweet commingling of past and present in a way that feels just right, right now. Papini's singing has a wisp of an English accent via Kansas City (she learned to sing by imitating Richard Butler on ...

The production by Shane Stoneback (Vampire Weekend, Sleigh Bells) and band member Nathan Michel imbues the entire record with an intimate yet prodigious sound, layering period keyboards with horns, synthesizers, and treated guitars.

Hospitality is Brian Betancourt, Nathan Michel, and Amber Papini.
