[BLOG-ROCK SURVIVORS] Warning sign to any young, hip band receiving lots of hype: You could be the next Black Kids. The Jacksonville quintet is the poster child for an era where music blogs cared more about breaking new acts (firsties!) than actually supporting artists with any real staying power. That said, it’s not like the band was the BrooklynVegan comment section of vaguely dance-y indie-pop acts—these guys were actually pretty good, with a solid debut album unfairly criticized in 2008 and a live show not yet ready for the big time. Black Kids still haven’t released a sophomore record, but it’s OK because we will always have “I’m Not Going to Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You,” simultaneously the best Cure song released since 1992 and the best indie-pop song of the blog-rock era. Come early for local synth-pop outfit Fringe Class, whose jam “Protector” might be my favorite jam on the 2014 PDX Pop Now! compilation.
