Check it out, ladies and gentleman — you can now get an additional weekly dose of shit-I-feel-like-talking-about at Mezzanine’s blog: MezzRx. And as if that weren’t great enough news on its own, I hear they have tons of great contests and giveaways that the masses have not yet caught on to. They do. Seriously, I want to submit a question for the Deerhunter interview to win a chance to meet the band I’m already interviewing, but that would be redundant. If you win, though, you’ll get to interview them with me!
And on that note, I’m pretty fucking jazzed about NoisePop, and I hope you are too, but just in case you’re not, I’ve put together this anticipatory playlist for your listening pleasure. You’re welcome.
Deerhunter — Nothing Ever Happened
Off of their latest, Microcastle. DH will be playing at Mezzanine on Tuesday.
AA Bondy — There’s a Reason
Mister Bondy will be playing at Slim’s on Thursday with Martha Wainwright.
Port O’Brien — I Woke Up Today
Good acoustic fun. I’ve seen them at the Swedish American, but they will be playing downstairs at Du Nord on Friday.
Les Savy Fav — Rage in the Plague Age
From 2008’s Let’s Stay Friends. These boys put on a mean live show. Playing at Mezz on Sunday the 1st.
