Serena Maneesh @ by:Larm (more)
Tonight (4/8) is NYC's last chance to see Serena-Maneesh for a while, at Le Poisson Rouge. The show is the end of a tour the band has been on since SXSW. We've got a pair of tickets to give away -- just send an email to BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM with "Serena-Maneesh" as the subject and include your name. We'll pick a winner at random ASAP. Also, along with the tickets you'll win a vinyl copy of S-M's great new album, No. 2: Abyss in B Minor. The show is 18+ and, like our Austin show they played, starts late -- doors are at 11PM, with openers The Depreciation Guild at 11:30 and Serena Maneesh at 1AM (you can go see them after almost any other show tonight).
Maybe it's the quality new album, but Serena-Maneesh have really been bringing their A-game this time around. You can check out video from their by:Larm showcase below.
Openers The Depreciation Guild will be previewing tracks from their new album, Spirit Youth, which scales back the 8-bit electronics to make way, perhaps, for more guitar pedals. I dig it. It's out May 18. You can check out the video to their single "Dream About Me" at the bottom of this post.
