The Starlight Mints

Appearing at The Social THURSDAY JULY 2nd, 2009

Starlight Mints — vocalist/guitarist Allan Vest, keyboardist Marian Love Nunez, bassist Javier Gonzales, drummer Andy Nunez, and guitarist Matt Goad — began jamming together in the ’90s as a seven-person band complete with orchestra, giving birth to their own funky brand of heavily instrumental — think cello, violin, triangle, and sound effects — surrealistically worded pop sound. Vest’s nasally yet skillful voice is like a cross between Pixie legend Frank Black’s tenor and Violent Femmes frontman Gordon Gano’s cracking throat.
