analog aura

This sounds sort of amazing:
Shearing Pinx are having a homecoming show on Sunday, and they're being joined by a ton of their friends. The all-ages show starts at noon and runs until 10pm at the Sweatshop and also features: i/i, Twin Crystals, Certain Breeds, Modern Creatures, V. Vecker, Empty Love, Black Mage, Basketball, Pink Noise, Kellarissa, Stamina Mantis, Nu Sensae, Ora Corgan, Taxes, and the Sorrow and the Pity.

Hermetic, No Gold, Ice Cream, and gr8-2000 are at the Peanut Gallery on Friday for a fundraiser for the One Tiny Whale movie (this one, I think).

What's Wrong with Tohei, the Barcelona Chair, Friends from School, and Catamaran are at La Casa del Artista on Saturday for an all-ager.

The Mohawk Lodge plays Casbah! at the Astoria on August 8th.

The Pack A.D. are at Richard's on August 16th.

Neil Halstead (of Slowdive/Mojave 3) is at the Media Club on August 22nd.

TV on the Radio are at the Commmodore on September 7th.


A Place to Bury Strangers, Sian Alice Group, and Japandroids are at the Biltmore on September 25th.

And We Are Wolves are at the Bourbon on September 27th.

The Sweatshop is temporarily shut down due to construction, FYI

I've seen Catamaran play at the Railway Club, opening for Rich Aucoin. They're a good band that needs a lot of work, but I really do enjoy their music.

Are No Gold named after No Age? I'm still very confused.

By Anonymous Doug, at 4:10 PM  

I can't say for sure that they adopted the name after No Age existed, but certainly before they became widely known. It's just a coincidence.

As far as I know, "no gold" is a play on Yukon, which was their old name.
