Blonde Redhead

"The room was filled to a suffocating level with smoke, tinted with hints of strawberry flavor, and bright white light- making it hard for just about anyone to orient themselves in the first few minutes of entering the room.

As the new songs played on the speakers below the murmur of voices, special $9 Blonde Redhead cocktails were served- raspberry vodka with prosecco and a touch of grenadine. And although the room too smokey, and the drinks too expensive and sweet, once the band took the stage to play a short set of Penny Sparkle songs, the air in the room shifted." [Free Williamsburg]

Blonde Redhead previewed their new album with an invite/contest-winner-only show at 92YTribeca here in NYC on Tuesday night. Penny Sparkle will be out September 14th via 4AD. Their tour with Pantha Du Prince kicks off in Philly on October 15th. Tickets are still on sale for the NYC show at Terminal 5.

What's with my leaving a genuine comment about the band, which gets "held for approval," and then moments later someone writes something that just flies through?

He's not a backing tape, I'm glad to see. This bodes well.......

Definitely a big fan of their music, but they're kinda terrible live. At least when I saw them on the '23' tour.

this show (event?) was terrible, and an even bigger disgrace that they sold tickets to it at the door for $15. way to rip people off.

I see they have a recipe for the "blonde redhead cocktail"... I wonder what the recipe would be for "blonde redhead hummus"
