AMOUR OBSCUR: Dee Dee Vega (singer), her husand Matt “The Knife” Goldpaugh (upright bass), Matt Dallow (accordion), playing since 2009.
SOUND: Weimar punk.
BEST OF THE SUBWAY: “If you get a good reception from cranky people coming home from work, you know that song’s going to be good onstage,” says Vega, who like many of the musicians here, also performs in more traditional venues.
WORST: Tailoring songs to fit the short attention spans of cranky people coming home from work (thus, “Rad Bromance,” Darrow’s abbreviated version of Lady Gaga’s hit.)
