Mika Miko @ their almost-last performance at Fun Fun Fun Fest
Mika Miko

L.A. punk band Mika Miko announced in October that their set at Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest (on November 8th) would be one of their last, but that they were in process of scheduling an official "last show" for their hometown at The Smell. They've booked three shows there for December 30th, December 31st and January 1st. The third, with Hello Astronaut Goodby Television, My Little Red Toe and OG Silver Daggers, is sold out, but you can still grab a ticket for the first show (openers TBA) and for the New Years Eve show, with Staring Problem, Ima Fucking Gymnist and DiGiTS. Mika Miko also previously mentioned a new 7" in the works through PPM.

PPM will also be releasing a 7" by from female-fronted lo-fi duo Best Coast. Best Coast join Vivian Girls on a West Cost tour this February. That swings by the Smell on Feb. 6th. Vivian Girls are in UK from the second week of January right up to their performance at the BAM Sounds Like Brooklyn Fest, where they play at Howard Gilman Opera House with Les Savy Fav on January 29th. Tickets are on sale.

mika miko will be missed. i won't be able to make the new years eves shows but i'm glad i got to see them at least once.

Mika Makinow miko you will be missed with your amazing stage presence. Please play final shows until 2012 because thats when you guys will have destroyed the earth cause you kill yall. An astounding punk band with old school cred that should put out a best of record retrospective so we can prepare for the doom of 2012 Miko armageddon.

Ewwww. Vomit in the mouth a bit.

Im not going to say what everyone else has already said, but I do want to comment on your knowledge of the topic. You're truly well-informed.

This is fantastic! I have to say, what really got me was your design. You certainly know how to make your blog more than just a rant about an issue.
