It’s been another banner year for Massachusetts’ own Speedy Ortiz. The quartet started the year with the release of the Real Hair EP, followed by Bigger Party released as part of the Adult Swim single series and toured the free world relentlessly. The band is currently putting the finishing touches on their follow up to 2013’s astonishing debut LP, Major Arcana in a Brooklyn studio. We’re hearing the band intends on playing some of the newly recorded material throughout their holiday residency.
It all kick off tonight with your hosts Sadie Dupuis (vocalist/guitarist), Mike Falcone(drums), Devin McKnight(guitarist), and Darl Ferm (bass). Speedy Ortiz has assembled a white hot supporting cast for night #1 featuring frantic post punks, Chandos,angular garage pop outfit, Bent Shapes and sludge punks, Idiot Genes. Each night will feature a special secret guest. Just announced: Tonight’s super secret guest is Mean Creek. Missing this will make you sad, don’t be sad.
