Telegram Scam returns to Best Video for another dose of echo-drenched gloom-pop. Since their last BV appearance in the summer of 2016, they have officially released their debut EP “Good-Looking Corpses,” replaced their drum machine with a warm body named Brett, and left ears ringing across the globe thanks to the support of independent radio. They are pleased to be welcomed back with the open arms and legs of this intimate venue.

They will be joined by My Two Dads (Battalene/Gardner/Snow Trio), featuring members of Landing and Mountain Movers performing an droney/noisy improv set. A veritable local underground supergroup!

My Two Dads.
