Just announced: Mission of Burma bands battle; Eula prevails


Aging Boston post-punkers Mission of Burma are at it again, still going strong after their 2002 revival with their latest album, The Sound The Speed The Light, which drops October 6. As we previously reported, they'll be playing a (free!) show at MIT this Sunday, an event for which eager local bands battled it out by a series of displays of physical strength uploading videos of themselves rocking out to Mission of Burma's website to score a gig opening for the band. The "Battle for Burma" (catchy, eh?) winners, Eula, are a New Haven trio that sound like "attic ghost women drifting around flocks of parakeets with feet stuck in drying rubber." (No, really, check their MySpace.) Mission of Burma and Eula will be joined by Boston's own Big Bear, they of pleasingly ear-shattering notoriety.
