NIGHT RALLY “A Birthday Party” -- Got a bit nostalgic for this mid-2000s Cambridge trio last week during the Throwback Accents, so I dug the internets around and found you can score the band's entire catalogue via their website, including demo The Elegant Look of New, their split with Clickers off Honeypump, and LP Preston Family Crest Go get it.
CREATUROS “James Days Milk Shake” -- Off this year's Swampp Thingg cassette release, the band is playing Pizzeria Regina on New Year's Eve with You Can Be A Wesley, Boytoy, and the Migs. There is no cover and pizza slices are only $1. Cool.
UNDERWATER BEAR BALLET “Naked In A Plastic Coffin” -- Demo cut posted recently from a batch all recorded in just one take, allegedly. Playing the Lily Pad in Cambridge on January 25. We have some time.
