Oxford Collapseis the kind of drunk, loopy band that you heard, beer in hand, rocking the musty basement at your older, cooler cousin's birthday party when you were 16. Remember the Night Parties?,the Brooklyn trio's aptly named new album, is a light collection of bizarre postpunk poetry that follows two previous albums that were both more urgent than cohesive. Night Parties is the product of a band that's finally figured out what kind of music it wants to make. Driving the bacchanalian vibe, singer Mike Pace hoots, croons and hums about losers, cops, lady lawyers, virgins, whores, booze and the dreaded end of summer. Celebrating the inebriated lives of 20-somethings is not a new theme in rock and roll, but when presented well, it makes for a party that'll get you through the night. Witness the Collapse live on Monday, February 5, at the Jackpot Music Hall with Thunderbirds Are Now and Ad Astra Per Aspera.
