The show tonight (November 19) at the Mercury Ballroom is for those folks excited to find a Danish dance-rock band on the bill – in this case New Politics – plus indie rock with a measure of neo-soul, all brought to you by the management company Ones To Watch, which also handles The Devil Makes Three, Iggy Azelea and Kongos. They are not limited to the Northern Hemisphere in their roster. Anyway, also on the bill are Southern California rock band Bad Suns and South Africa’s Somekindawonderful, which brings the neo-soul to the mix. All three bands are relatively new to the scene and are on this tour to expand their fan base, of course. Check below for a sample of the music you will hear. Tickets are $18 adv/ $20 DoS. Enjoy,

Here’s the just-released “Everyone I Go” from New Politics:
