If you missed out on catching that little-known weirdo chillwave act from Brooklyn that packed 'em in at this intimate Grand Avenue gallery and performance venue, don't fret. They'll play Phoenix again, albeit at the much bigger venue. That's because Trunk Space co-owners Stephanie Carrico and JRC have a predilection for booking burgeoning bands that likely are bound for greater things. Look at their track record: Louisiana's The Givers visited years before becoming the toast of the blogosphere or tearing the house down at Coachella. Ditto for Matt and Kim, Yacht, and STRFKR. And folk-punk pair Andrew Jackson Jihad cut their teeth on the space's tiny triangular stage prior to signing to Asian Man Records. So if you're one of those indie early adopters who loves whining about how you "heard about 'em first," pop a squat on the Trunk Space's floor and catch artists long before they hit Pitchfork's radar.
