"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.

Tune in for today's brand new episode of the award-winning, live-hosted 480 Minutes program (Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Eastern U.S.Time): http://somafm.com/bagel/
