Holy F**k at The Independent the next two nights, 27th & 28th, previewing material off of their sophomore full-length, due in September. As well, thanks for the !!! preview. Should you care to attend their performance at the Fillmore Monday night. Love to have you out.
In addition, sent you a copy of Land of Talk's debut ep, Applause Cheer Boo Hiss, prior to its March 19th release here in the U.S. Already critically acclaimed in their home nation of Canada, the Montreal trio have been building momentum here in the U.S. since early last year, performing regularly in New York, before hitting SXSW and taking to the road with Menomena and Field Music. Paste Magazine was quick on the ball, already calling Applause, "The most perfect debut of 2006", before running a feature in their current issue, and KEXP's John Richards, put it quite simply, "Holy crap, this is great!". Land of Talk will take to the road with The Rosebuds in June, making their San Francisco debut, June 12th at the Great American.
Pull it out of your stacks and give a listen.

THE AVETT BROTHERS
Thursday, April 26
$15 - Doors 8, Show 9
The Avett's brand new album to be released May 15 entitled "Emotionalism". The album, like The Avett Brothers, is a mixture of old-time country, bluegrass, pop melodies, folk, rock n' roll, honky-tonk and ragtime. The songs are honest: just chords with real voices singing real melodies. But, the heart and the energy with which they are sung, is really why people are talking, and why so many sing along.
