Tonight: hear the New Pornographers' latest in Somerville

Tonight, those of you who can make it over to the Independent in Union Square in Somerville have a chance to be among the first to hear Together (it hasn't even leaked yet!), the newest from Canadian pop supergroup THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS, thanks to Matador, WZBC, and Bradley's Almanac. Oh, and Pabst Blue Ribbon, also. Cheap beer and good music! Details below via Bradley:

  • Hosted by myself and DJ Rav from WZBC's very fine Flyweight radio programme.
  • Between 9pm and 1am, we'll play the New Pornographers new one a couple times, two weeks before you can buy it.
  • When we're not playing the album, we'll be playing our favorite Matador Records-released songs, along with something special: A just-for-the-occasion mix disc put together by head-Pornographer Carl Newman himself.
  • Starting at 9pm, the first 20 people through the door get a limited edition, hand-numbered CD burn of that mix disc. It's ridiculously, and wonderfully, eclectic, and there were just 150 made (the rest went to the other countrywide Get Togethers, of course).
  • We'll be giving out a pair of tickets to the New Pornographers' show at Boston's House of Blues on Friday night, June 18th.
  • We also have posters (two of which are autographed by Mr. Newman) and a couple copies of the Dan-Bejar-penned "Myriad Harbor" vinyl seven-inch single (which includes a non-Challengers b-side) to give away as well.
  • The evening is not just presented by Matador Records, WZBC, and yes, Bradley's Almanac - it's also sponsored by PBR, who have set up special deal on a certain amount of tallboys (not quite free, but close enough).
  • If you need more of a teaser than that, "Your Hands (Together)" and "Crash Years" have already been released to the internet; we can link you to the former, but the latter is an iTunes exclusive at the moment. 

    LISTEN:  New Pornographers, "Your Hands (Together)" (mp3)
