DOWNLOAD: Blonde Redhead - Not Getting There (MP3)

Blonde Redhead @ 92YTribeca in August (more by kolored)
Blonde Redhead

Blonde Redhead will play a Fashion Week kick-off show at Tribeca Grand this evening, Tuesday, September 7th...

"The evening will go something like this. You'll arrive at the Tribeca Grand on September 7, and enjoy complimentary beer from Williamsburg's own Brooklyn Brewery and Elevated cocktails by Tequila Avion. An hour(ish) later, Kazu Makino and twin brothers Simone and Amedeo Pace--Blonde Redhead--will take the stage, filling the intimate space with their dream pop sound. After the show, you'll attend a private party with the band and the members of their guest list. The entire evening has been designed specifically for Gilt City."
And Gilt City was where you could get tickets for $80 each.

A more affordable option would be grabbing a ticket for the band's November 3rd Webster Hall show where you also get an opening set by Pantha Du Prince for your $30 (but no free beer).

Blonde Redhead's new album Penny Sparkle, out September 14th via 4AD, is streaming in full at NPR NOW. Grab "Not Getting There" as a free download above. Check out the band performing "Here Sometimes" (a 4AD Session), along with updated tour dates, below...

is the new album any good?

$30 is waaaaay too much for this band

$20 and a bigger venue (T5) seems like the better option for them

"enjoy complimentary beer from Williamsburg's own Brooklyn Brewery"

Which is actually brewed in Utica, NY.

That is sooo much money. Saw them last year for free in Prospect Park. It is probably not their fault. It is the dumb promoter that is charging so much.

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2010 2:10 PM

don't really understand why anyone would pay $80 for the chance to hang out with the people that got in for free (the snob-filled-freeloading guestlist)

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.

I can't believe how much of this I just wasn't aware of. Thank you for bringing more information to this topic for me. I'm truly grateful and really impressed.

It’s really great post..I have read a number of posts of yours, but this is the one that I like the most. So expecting some more ideas from your side.

New record is pretty amazing. I think it's worth the $30 since Pantha is on the bill.
