The Skinny: In Cages are an alternative rock/indie quartet from Hillsdale, New Jersey. The band counts the Pixies and Sonic Youth as its major influences and each member has had a long history of playing music in various local groups. Like most great bands, these guys don’t pay much attention to modern musical trends, instead focusing on their own brand of modern indie rock.
In Cages has a new self-titled EP out and some extensive tour plans lined up for the near future. The band are booked for a host of indie festivals this summer, including the Digable Arts Festival, Le Grande Fromage, the David & Goliath music series and the Cupcake Festival.
