"480 Minutes" - Coathangers Tonight @ Mercury Lounge!


I am very excited to see The Coathangers tonight at The Mercury Lounge in NYC.  I have been fortunate enough to see the band several times (mostly as a quartet, most recently as a trio).  Tonight will be different from all of those other nights because I'll be accompanied by my best friend since childhood who also happens to love The Coathangers, and they are playing within walking distance of his apartment, and it's his birthday!  How cool is that?!

In honor of this blessed event we will play a 'hangers song.  Or four.

We will also be playing the recordings that we did of Bay Area bands Birdmonster and Mister Loveless at the SomaFM studio -- these recordings are available as a very limited edition 7" single (yes, vinyl!) -- our gift to you for a donation of $35 or more.  Just in time for Record Store Day!

Today we will debut new songs by The Black Angels (Austin, TX, @TheBlackAngels) Call To Mind (Glasgow, Scotland, @CallToMind), Chad VanGaalen (Calgary, Canada, @ChadVanGaalen), DWNTWN (Los Angeles, CA, @dwntwnmusic), Eels (Los Angeles, CA), The Faint (Omaha, NE, @TheFaint), Howler (Minneapolis, MN, @howler_band), Malachai (Bristol, England, @GeeMalachai), Only Real (London, England, @OnlyRealReal), The Spits (Seattle, WA), Villagers (Dublin, Ireland, @WeAreVillagers), and a couple of songs from the Finland Music/Line Of Best Fit Record Store Day release.

"480 Minutes" - new Maximo Park


A busy week here this week meant not a lot of sleep but that's OK, 480 Minutes host Ted Leibowitz is usually only about half-awake behind the mic, anyway.  During the live hosted hours free to give him a hard time about the mistakes, mispronunciations, and long pauses caused by his tired brain attempting to retrieve information through a sleep-deprived haze.

Through that haze it was extremely disappointing to note the almost unfathomable fact that the new Pixies "album," which is not much more than a compilation of the 3 EPs the band has released since the departure of Kim Deal, offered up no new songs worthy of air play.  How sad is that?  Swing and a miss, not a hit to be had, from one of our all-time favorite bands, no less.  Perhaps after we sleep all weekend the haze will  lift and we will discover hidden gem. (don't hold your breath...about the gem, or about us catching up on sleep this weekend!).

Today we will debut new songs by The Afghan Whigs (Cincinnati, OH, @TheAfghanWhigs), Beaty Heart (London, England, @BeatyHeart), Chuck E. Weiss (Los Angeles, CA), Fujiya & Miyagi (Brighton, England), Jef Barbara (Montre├íl, Canada), Jessica Lea Mayfield (Kent, OH, @JessicaMayfield), Maximo Park (Newcastle, England, @MaximoPark), Overlake (Jersey City, NJ, @OverlakeMusic), Protomartyr (Detroit, MI), SWF (Brooklyn, NY, @StevieWF), and Tweens (Cincinnati, OH, @tweensband).
