tonight at Black Cat: Title Tracks / Cymbals Eat Guitars
Since Title Tracks joined Cymbals Eat Guitars in Brooklyn a few weeks back, it's only proper that they make their way down to DC. Tonight these two will be together again with Sinta kicking off the evening. It's a backstage show at Black Cat, doors open at 8:30, and tickets are only $10.
New demo below. So exciting! Here's an e-mail I just got from Casey of Thrushes...
Just wanted to update everybody on some exciting developments in the Thrushes nest!
1. Original drummer, Matt Davis, has rejoined the band and we are hard at work on the follow up to "Sun Come Undone." The new album will be called "Night Falls" and is expected to be released in the fall.
2. Our good friends at the Metro Gallery in Baltimore are throwing their first outdoor festival to celebrate their second anniversary and it's a doozie! Rufustival is June 6th and features good friends and sonic terrorists, A Place to Bury Strangers, Dirty Projectors, Chairlift, and many more. A portion of the proceeds will benefit BARCS (Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter) and their Franky Fund. This is a fantastic organization doing great work for our furred and feathered friends. If there is any way that you can help spread the world, we would be forever grateful. To celebrate Thrushes will be playing our entire new album months before it's released!! Tickets are $25 here.
3. We're one of five finalists in Artscape's SoundOff! Competition. We'd really love to play America's largest free arts festival so please vote as often as you can before May 31st.
