DOWNLOAD: The Morning Benders - Promises (MP3)
A trio of bands - Cuddle Magic, Morning Benders and Shark? - played acoustic sets at Housing Works's CD swap on Thursday, February 25th. Two separate sets of pictures from that Hype Machine-sponsored event are in this post.
Morning Benders then played Market Hotel two days later and they have a busy upcoming schedule - they'll tour to SXSW and return to NYC for a show on April 22nd at Mercury Lounge which is now sold out (though Harlem, the early show at the same venue that night, is still on sale). Didn't grab tickets? Well, they've added a second show. The new Mercury Lounge date is Wednesday, April 28th. Tickets go on sale soon.
Can't wait that long? The band's album, which you can stream online and get a song from above, comes out March 9th on Rough Trade. So to celebrate they'll play a BrooklynVegan-presented CD release show at The Cameo this Monday, March 8th. The place is small. The show is FREE. Arrive early if you want a shot at getting in. Flyer below.
The rest of Morning Benders' tour dates, including SXSW, are HERE (plus there's at least one more Austin show still TBA). Flyers, a live session with friends (that include members of Girls & John Vanderslice), and more pictures are below...
