MoonfaceMoonface

I actually came across this other band named Moonface (from Providence, Rhode Island) while looking for info for our last Moonface post. Moonface, the one we were writing about, is the new Spencer Krug project. At first I thought maybe Spencer (of Wolf Parade fame) had accidentaly used a band name that was already taken, but then I saw that this other Moonface appear to be even newer. They haven't even played one show yet, have been on Twitter less than two months and so for only have demos posted on their BandCamp. They need to change their name (and do a better job of Googling).

Spencer's Moonface released an EP in 2010 via Jagjaguwar (announced in 2009) and is now well known to Google and the indie rock world. To make matters worse (and the reason I'm writing this post in the first place), the Rhode Island band is confusing people and even getting booked by people who think that they're booking Spencer. Not only is Spencer NOT playing Glasslands on August 13th, neither is the Moonface from Rhode Island since Glasslands realized that was who they accidentally booked to headline the Saturday night show which is now cancelled.

Spencer is however touring and playing NYC in July.

Ugh, I hate Moonface. But I've been listening to this other band I like... They're called Moonface?

304pm if you were actually at their first show, you would have been surprised.

This album will be on my top 10 list for sure this year....

It's hard to imagine that Glasslands has any standards when it comes to who they book, that's the real take-away from this non-news.

Mercury Lounge is the real Moonface aka Spencer Krug

Maybe Spencer should do some Googling of his own. There was already a project called Moonface back in 2001 on John Digweed's Bedrock imprint.
