MISSION OF BURMA + BIG BEAR are playing for free at MIT. The announcement says "rain or shine," although there's a clause in there that mentions cancellation in the event of a torrential downpour.
SENSES FAIL are at Harpers Ferry.
EVERY TIME I DIE are at House of Blues.
BLK JKS are at T.T. the Bear's Place
As you can see above, this Sunday, the day Mission of Burma plays a free show at MIT with special-guest openers Eula, the city of Boston will honor the band by declaring "Mission of Burma Day." While it is pretty cool, it should be pointed out that this city has a bizarre habit of handing these things out like they were free samples of organic cookies.
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.
From the press release:
Clint Conley, Bob Weston, Roger Miller & Peter Prescott will be playing a free, all-ages outdoor show on the East Campus Courtyard of MIT just two days before the release of The Sound The Speed The Light, at 2pm on Sunday, October 4th!That's not all, there is a Battle of The Bands (or Battle For Burma, rather) being held in conjunction with this momentous occasion.
Fresh off their performance at East River State Park in Williamsburg (with Fucked Up!), Boston post-punk legends Mission of Burma announced (or, rather, their label, Matador, announced for them) today that they'll release a new album this fall. Entitled The Sound, The Speed, The Light, it's their third post-reunion release.
