Big news, friends - the HILOTRONS are venturing down to New York City for a couple of special showcases put on by the good people at Musebox. These guys don’t make it down to the U.S. very often at all, so please come out and show them love, support, and your best dance moves.

Here’s all the info:

Wednesday Nov. 5 @ Union Pool, Brooklyn

Formed in Ottawa in 2002, the Hilotrons – consisting of frontman Michael John Dubue, keyboardist Mike Schultz, guitarist Paul Michael Hogan, bassist Damian Sawka and drummer Philip Shaw Bova – have earned a very devoted following for their energetic live shows, sonic imagination and three minute infectious pop gems.

The Hilotrons have released three albums to date (2003’s HILOTRONS, 2006’s Bella Simone and 2008’s Happymatic).

    Why doesn't pitchfork do something good for a change and give these guys a positive review? Nothing would hype them more to the 'indie' crowd than that. They sure would deserve it.

    Yeah, the tag Happy Emo is about as correct as calling them a horse race.

    Umm no one said they are emo? Happy Emo has NOTHING to do with emo lol. Happy Emo is a tag for bands that give you happy emotions and make you feel great!
