Set for lift-off

Published April 04. 2013 4:00AM

Slander and Daphne Lee Martin are sharing a bill Friday in New London's Oasis Pub, and when you show up it will be the musical equivalent of gathering at Cape Canaveral to watch two rockets blast into space.

Recently, Slander was hyped by the archly-influential Stereogum.com on the site's popular "Bands to Watch" feature, and they're being booked increasingly at genuinely cool venues in New York City.

Martin, meanwhile, recently killed in a performance during Austin's South-by-Southwest music festival, and her latest album, "Moxie," was recently spotted on the CMJ Top 200 college radio chart.

As a bonus: the fine Indianapolis band, Freddie T & the People, will also perform.

Slander, 9 p.m. Friday, Oasis Pub,

16 Bank St., New London; Daphne Lee Martin and Freddie T & the People also perform; $5; (860) 447-3929.
