    New York City -- I headed to The Studio at Webster Hall last night for one of the final performances at the New York Music Festival, a component of New Music Seminar.

    Pretty & Nice were on stage when I entered The Studio, their sound a mix between throwback artists Simple Plan and Green Day. The Postelles were up next, their beachy pop tracks harking back to summer days, salty hair, and sandy toes. The band's sense of camaraderie was apparent; the group joking and interacting constantly throughout the show. The indie rock four-piece, which formed at a preparatory school on Manhattan's Upper West Side, consists of Daniel Balk, David Dargahi, John Speyer, and Billy Cadden. If you haven't heard this quartet, I suggest you take a listen, sooner rather than later.
