Bodega are a Brooklyn art punk band under the influence of rock and roll, post punk, contemporary pop, hip-hop, kraut rock, and folk-derived narrative songwriting.
Comprised of Ben Hozie, Nikki Belfiglio, Montana Simone, Madison Velding-Vandam and Heather Elle, the band released their debut single, How Did This Happen, in February 2018, having just signed to What's Your Rupture? Records. Their first full length album, 'Endless Scroll', was released on June 1 to critical acclaim and rapturous support from BBC 6 Music.
After touring the UK and Europe extensively throughout 2018, as well as their home country and a slew of festival slots over the summer including sets at the Great Escape, Latitude and Benicassim, Brooklyn's favourite art punks have confirmed new UK and Ireland tour dates for February 2019. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.

Bodega are the art school kids who might sneer at you for Instagramming a picture at their show. They’re the ones who, after a convincing “this isn’t satire”, order their audience to check their emails during the next song. Bodega roll out lines like “I touch myself while staring at your chat text box” and “I use my computer for everything, heaven knows I’m miserable now.” Their message: we are dominated by consumer culture and technology is taking over our lives.
