Aberdeen City to sign with Columbia Records

ARE YOU THERE GOD? It's me, Aberdeen City. It won't be official for another week or so, but sources tell OTD that after a whirlwind bidding war, Boston's Aberdeen City will sign to Columbia Records. In another local connection, their A&R rep is Maureen Kelly, a Boston University grad who while at Universal Records signed the Scissor Sisters. The band plays England Product series at Bill's Bar on February 24, shortly before making their first trip to SXSW, and is readying a limited-edition 7-inch of their local hit "God Is Going To Get Sick Of Me" (which, shortly after we shouted it out, was promptly awarded song of the year at the Boston Music Awards), with a flip-side remix by Lo-Fidelity All-Stars.
