"480 Minutes" - New Crystal Castles, Asobi Seksu

Before I forget -- we are now just 6 weeks away from the BAGeL Radio 10th Birthday Party and tickets are on sale now.  Make sure you get into the event (and save a couple of bucks) by purchasing one in advance for yourself, and one for a friend, and one for that friend's friend who always seems to tag along at the last-minute and is somehow never properly prepared for any activity.

The show has a far better lineup than I had hoped for, featuring Mister Loveless, Churches, and Birdmonster, all playing at my favorite live music venue, Bottom of the Hill, on Friday, February 1st, 2013.  Doors are at 8:30 and it's an All Ages Show just like the one that Juliana Hatfield's sister would have taken her to, only without The Del Fuegos, and only if she's actually had a sister.

Welcome to the "It's The End of the World As We Know It And I Feel Mayan" edition of 480 Minutes in which we play that R.E.M. song every hour until the apocalypse commences or my brain begins to hemorrhage, whichever comes first.  LEONARD BERNSTEIN!

OK, we're not really going to do that, the world is not ending, and there's little chance of any brain leakage.

Instead we will again revel in the year that was in indie rock, as well as debut a handful of new songs today by Asobi Seksu (Brooklyn, NY), Boris (Tokyo, Japan), Crystal Castles (Toronto, Canada), Team Ghost (Paris, France), Wonky Doll and the Echo (Athens, Greece), and Your Youth (NewYork, NY).
